The U.S. Army Aviation Museum maintains a collection of over 160 military aircraft, including one of the largest collections of military helicopters in the world. Approximately 50 beautifully restored, historic and one-of-a-kind aircraft, are proudly displayed both inside the Museum's 70,000 square feet of exhibit space and outside on the Museum's grounds. The collection includes many significant examples of early research efforts and developments in rotary wing technology and the evolution of the helicopter. Our public galleries represent the Army's involvement in military aviation from the beginning days with the Wright brothers and the early combat aircraft of World War I, up to the highly technological machines such as the AH-64 Apache and the UH-60 Blackhawk flown by Army Aviators today.

Take it from a history buff and Army Aviator; one of the best museums I’ve seen and well worth the visit. And it’s free!

This museum met and exceeded expectations for an army museum. It had many aircrafts set up to look at and see how the craft adapted to new science.

What a great museum to see aviation from way back when! THIS is a must for anyone traveling through or living in the area. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing the old "choppers" and airplanes. Good history, well displayed with the history of each flying vessel!

We arrived to see this and we're told that we couldn't because we are British - we don't have a US social security number. The clownish security guard appeared to take pleasure in telling us. What an unfriendly and ungrateful ally the US is!

I just wouldn't make a special trip to see it. (Go to the HisSteven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia instead!)
