Things to Do
The Hiller Aviation Museum is open on weekends. See our COVID-19 information page for more details.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, for reasons of health safety, the museum is configured primarily as a display museum. Our 50+ aircraft and historical displays and exhibits exploring the history and lore of aviation are fully available. Many hands-on exhibits are temporarily offline because their “high-touch” nature is not in alignment with State guidelines for Zoos, Aquariums and Museums during the pandemic, at least for the moment. To see what is currently open and what is offline or closed, CLICK HERE to read our FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions.
