The museum was founded in 1986. The Aviation Museum's goal is to honor the men, women, and machines that have impacted the history of aviation. Museum exhibits include military and vintage aircraft. Restoration projects are also found onsite. Museum displays will share stories of aviation history, and there are exhibits about the heroes of aviation. You will learn about historical figures such as Wilbur Wright and Amelia Earhart. These hands-on exhibits help teach about general aviation concepts. The Dakota Territory Air Museum also participates in scholarship programs and sponsors year sweepstakes. Register to win an aircraft, bomber jackets, money, and more. Sweepstakes help to provide funding for the museum.
