Located at the Richmond International Airport, the Virginia Aviation Museum is dedicated to preserving and showcasing the history of flight. The museum features an outstanding collection of vintage aircraft, including a reproduction of the Wright brothers’ famous 1903 Flyer, early flight memorabilia, and the Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame.
Knowledgeable volunteers will take you on a journey back through time where you can learn more about the legendary Admiral Richard E. Byrd, who flew over Antarctica, see the SR-71 Blackbird, and walk around a Navy A-4C Skyhawk. Enjoy interactive exhibits and get behind the controls of a real J-3 Cub, experience a wind tunnel in action, and take in a few aviation films in the modern Benn Theater.
