History


When the Army Aviation Museum was officially established on April 17, 1956, there were no clear Army regulations for the funding or organization of a museum. The museum was able to function through the hard work and dedication of senior aviation officers who, for over ten years, added aircraft and memorabilia to the museum. The doors were formally opened to the public on November 26, 1968 after the museum had been relocated. Over 130,000 visitors had been welcomed in the first year of operation. Since then, the museum continues to increasingly expand and grow with the collection of historical artifacts and aircraft.

Reviews


The Aviation Museum is much more than just helicopters it is the story of Army Aviation and its importance to the military. The staff is exceptional and really gives a great tour. The aircraft have been restored to mint condition. While truly worth a visit for those interested in military and American history, the whole family will enjoy. Located on base at Fort Rucker Alabama. It is accessible to civilians
Helicopter History. Mjkksheridan, Trip Advisor.
Aircraft, uniform, and technology displays pique the interest of visitors and provide awe-inspiring and humbling information. History comes alive as you take in the various and varied aircraft. Uniforms and technology may have changed but it is obvious that the commitment to serve has not. In addition to information on a few key individuals who served, there are dismantled display aircraft for the next generation of pilots and their families to sit in. There truly is something for everyone here and it is well worth a visit.
Aviation history, technology, and information inspires! K D, Trip Advisor.
My husband, two adult daughters and I visited my nephew on his Family Day. What an amazing time we had to learn about helicopters. We were quite impressed! The museum also has a great gift shop!
