Overview
More
The museum is open to the public even though the museum is on an active Air Force installation. All that is required is for non-military ID card holders and groups to call us or submit a request on our web site a minimum of one day in advance of your visit (before and 12 pm MST) to arrange for a pass and detailed instructions. A State or federal issued Photo ID is required for all Non-DoD visitors over 18. Drivers will need to have proof of insurance and registration for their vehicles. The Museum preserves and portrays the rich aviation and space history of Colorado Springs and Peterson Air Force Base. From our barnstormer beginnings in the Roaring Twenties, through the daring exploits of our World War II pilots and into the modern space era, our exhibits are sure to capture your attention.

This museum has a lot of static displays, old airplanes and moments from space. Veterans will give you a guided tour. Hard to believe there is no charge to tour.

I believe it was closed. I could not find the entrance. So I just took pictures. I decided to just take pictures of surrounding area, because we were headed for Pikes Peak

This is located on Peterson Air Force Base. The visitors center is the old Colorado Aprings airport terminal. The aircraft and misses are worth seeing!
