Run for the WASP 5K and museum tour

We had a great time as always! The museum is expanding with lots of new things in store. I can't wait to see. The kids enjoyed the museum and the run.

This museum is small and housed in an old WWII hanger. There are women volunteers to give informative tours or you can go alone. A short movie is shown with more timeline details and grat old movie footage. There is no fee to visit the museum, but they take donations. A newer museum building is being built next door. Being...

What a hidden gem this is! We were driving through Sweetwatet on our way to NM and read about this museum. Since both my husband and I knew a bit about the WASPs' history during WWII from reading Fanny Flagg's novel, we decided to stop and check it out. Most people, unfortunately, don't know the story. Because there was a... More

I did not know anything about the Women Air Force Service Pilots. Very informative- I wish I had more time to spend there.

We enjoyed our hour at the National WASP Museum. There's a plethora of information about the short-lived WASP program and its founder Cochran. If you love aviation or WW2 facts, you'll love the visit. The gift shop has several books if you're interested in this ear. It's free, but please drop something in the donation box! They are expanding and... More

I have never met more dedicated people. The way they want to preserve the history of these great American heroes is outstanding. I have been many times to the museum and am always impressed with the exhibits they have for such a small place in a small West Texas town. Talking to the folks there shows just how dedicated they...

I read things that I had never heard of, and also things that I had heard of, but didn't really now anything about. The wonderful Women Represented here, is what helps get our Military... More

This museum is a little gem depicting a brief, but very important time in our history. As described, it is in an old hanger and consists primarily of displays (wear your jacket if it's cold outside!). We found their story to be fascinating for what they did and the barriers they broke. Limited hours, be sure to check before stopping.

This is a good place to stop by and visit when you around or travelling to Big Spring. Lots of great stories and historical events about woman aviators and their great service to this country during WW2. Glad that we stopped by and checked this place on our way to Abilene from Big Spring.
