Top 10 Aviation Museums to Visit in the U.S.
EAA is proud to announce the Aviation Challenge!
Here’s how it works. Each month EAA will challenge you and your friends to discover aviation by going on a specific adventure. During it, capture what inspires you, piques your interests, and encourages you to explore aviation further. Then share a photo and story about your experience with the hashtag #AVChallenge.
Your story could even turn into something bigger that’ll inspire others to join in. So watch our website and social channels for a new challenge at the start of each month and share away!
FIRST CHALLENGE | APRIL
Starting April 1, we challenge you to visit an aviation museum, near or far, sometime during the month.
To help you get started, we’ve listed 10 of our favorite aviation museums in the U.S. There are many more across the globe, so don’t worry if you’re in another part of the world. Simply search for one close to you.
Then, share a photo of your museum visit on your favorite social media channel. Include the hashtag #AVChallenge. Be sure to share it in the month of April and watch for it in our album!
