The Airman Heritage Museum

Mission: Preserving the USAF History

The USAF Airman Heritage Museum collects, researches, preserves, interprets and presents the United States Air Force (and predecessor organizations) Enlisted Corps history, heritage, and traditions to develop Airmen and Guardians today… for tomorrow. We instill an understanding of and an appreciation for the USAF and USSF history and the distinct Airman and Guardian culture through engaging exhibits, educational and outreach programs, and the stewardship of the national historic collection. We are the “Gateway to the Air Force.”
