Aviation Museum of Kentucky Closed During Move

The Aviation Museum of Kentucky is closed at present due to a move to a new location.

Since its founding in 1978, members of the Kentucky Aviation History Roundtable dreamed of an aviation museum. To this end, the group incorporated in 1981 as the Aviation Museum of Kentucky. In 1984, the IRS granted 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt status. In 1994, the General Assembly designated the Kentucky Aviation Hall of Fame as the Commonwealth’s official Aviation Hall of Fame. And in 1995 the dream came true: April 2010 marked the Museum’s fifteenth anniversary.

The Aviation Museum of Kentucky has welcomed guests from all 50 states and from more than 80 foreign countries. We have grown to contribute immeasurably to the public understanding of and enthusiasm for aviation – an industry that in 2000 contributed $10.3 billion to Kentucky’s economy and supported 129,000 Kentucky jobs.
