This museum is a little gem depicting a brief, but very important time in our history. As described, it is in an old hanger and consists primarily of displays (wear your jacket if it's cold outside!). We found their story to be fascinating for what they did and the barriers they broke. Limited hours, be sure to check before stopping.

This is a good place to stop by and visit when you around or travelling to Big Spring. Lots of great stories and historical events about woman aviators and their great service to this country during WW2. Glad that we stopped by and checked this place on our way to Abilene from Big Spring.

The Museum is in an old hangar. Displays are spaced around inside, mostly on posters and photo montages. This is where 80% of WASPS were trained during WW II to ferry military aircraft around. Service biographies of most are shown. Incredibly, they did not get credit for military service until decades later. There is a small gift shop.

Great place to visit. Learn about some great women aviators and their service to our country during war time. Not many of them left.

This museum, just off interstate 20 was most enjoyable. Who knew these women were NOT considered military, or that they paid for their own clothes? We watched a video about the WASP training and were fascinated to note the many forms of footwear worn by these young women as they did their daily calisthenics. For those young folk with no...

This is a wonderful museum dedicated to near 1000 women volunteered and were trained to fly every military plane. They learned and ferried planes across the United States for shipping overseas. Their work of ferrying the planes freed up male aviators so they could fight in both the European theatre and Pacific. They worked tirelessly to do a job for... More

We happened upon this museum after a Yelp search. I went with two of my teenage nieces, and they both thought it was a good find, which is pretty positive coming from young ladies with short attention spans and cell phones glued to their hands. It was a wonderful find, providing good history and stories about the women who flew... More

This is a small but excellent museum covering the history of the WASPs, complete with a variety of airplanes and photos of many of the WASPs that trained there. This is a lost piece of our history and everyone should make an effort to learn more about these brave, unselfish women and their contributions to the war effort, along with... More
