This database is intended to provide a complete all-time list of aviation-related museums worldwide. Any curated museum with one or more aviation exhibits is included. Only venues OPEN TO THE PUBLIC have been included. Where admittance requirements are unclear, the venue is included, but may be deleted if it proves to be by prior permission only. Non-curated aircraft, such as those preserved in parks, memorials or mounted on poles, are tabulated separately.
Our coverage is all-time and therefore includes once active museums that have now closed. Venue history and full aircraft exhibit details will be provided on the website for each one.
Comments, corrections and additions are welcome. Please let me know if there are any venues you think I’ve missed – particularly defunct museums. The listing of venues in the United States and Canada is a bit light, and will be updated in the near future. In the meantime, feel free to add missing ones you have noticed.
