Overview

The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome is a true “living” museum of antique aviation located in the historic town of Rhinebeck, New York. We present one of the largest collections of early aeroplanes in the world, as well as automobiles, motorcycles, early engines and memorabilia spanning the period from 1900-1939. During our exciting weekend air shows, the Aerodrome turns back the hands of time and relives the early years of aviation (weather permitting). This colorful era is brought back to life amidst the roar of rotary engines and is great entertainment for all ages. The Saturday shows chronicle the history of flight with pioneer, World War I and Lindbergh era aircraft taking to the skies. If the winds are calm you will even see our 1909 Bleriot (the oldest flying aircraft in the United States) take to the air. The Sunday shows feature a World War I dogfight as well as barnstorming aircraft. In addition to weekend aerial demonstrations, the Aerodrome also offers four museum buildings housing static displays of aircraft from the pioneer, World War I and Lindbergh/barnstorming eras which are open to the public seven days a week from May to October.

The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome is extremely pathetic on a weekday. There are no shows. All that is open is the "museum", and the gift shop. In order to access the museum, you have to go through the Gift Shop. However, it is $12 per person,...More

Very interesting combo of museum viewing and air show. We toured the museum with 2 pilots who served in WWII so we were treated with some great stories. The air show was a lot of fun for any age. Slower pace than the big shows...More

A great living museum. The "exhibits" fly, and aren't just on static display. Serious flying, with a bit of cornball humor thrown in. All levels of visitors are there, from aviation nuts, to families with little kids, and there is something for everyone. Of course...More

I honestly don't know the answer but would just check with the aerodrome when making your reservations. My guess is they will be flexible
