Vision:

The National Museum of World War II Aviation is the only museum in the world to focus exclusively on the unique story of the role of aviation in World War II.

The Museum will bring to life:

How a nation came together as never before or since, and the many stories behind the great effort
How pilots and their support personnel, whose courage and patriotism remain a source of inspiration, changed the course of world history
The unique partnership between civilian and military expertise that created a winning aviation team
The surge in industrial productivity that overwhelmed our adversaries
The introduction of women into the workforce
The aircraft designers and builders whose innovations created entirely new technologies for flying
 
These important stories, and many others, continue to have great power to teach and inspire future generations.
