The American Museum of Aviation is a 501 c 3 non profit organization that highlights aviation and creates experiences for our future generations. The American Museum of Aviation offers the opportunity to tour a number of military, commercial jet and propeller driven airliner cockpits in Las Vegas, NV. The museum displays are made possible through donations and sponsorships from individuals and corporations.

Explore the dynamics of flight with hands on experience in the cockpits of actual military aircraft, propeller driven & jetliners that once flew for the airlines. Strap yourself into one of our cockpits and get the feel of what it’s like to fly an airliner.

We are now seeking funds to erect two buildings for our museum. Building #1 is the main musuem that will house the commercial and military aircraft cockpits and simulators. Inside this building a second display area for sports of all types and the role that aviation played. Our center piece will be the Los Angles Dodgers Boeing 720 team jetliner cockpit which is currently being restored in our temporary warehouse area in Las Vegas. Our third display area will be a Classic RT66 Hot Rod Museum that will display many classic hot rods and drag cars of the 50's, 60's and 70's.

Our second Building #2 will be our aircraft maintenance and restoration facility for all exhibits.

We currently have an Office/Warehouse in Las Vegas, small storage area and our main storage of all our displays is Mojave, CA. Our goal is to place everything in one area and build a First Class Aviation Museum for our future generations.  Our museum will offer something for everyone.

Join the American Museum of Aviation supporters and you'll meet a prestigious group of individuals and sponsors who share a passion for innovation, aviation, and education.
