Aviation Museum

The Greater Fort Wayne Aviation Museum is a showcase of aviation in the tri-state area, featuring military, commercial, and general aviation.  Highlighting the lives of Ft. Wayne's "Bird Boy", Art Smith and WWI Ace, Lt. Paul Baer, the museum brings the romance era of aviation to life through historic details of the old Baer Field and memories of Fort Wayne in the 40's and 50's.  The museum is located on the secured side of the Lt. Paul Baer terminal at Fort Wayne International Airport.

Due to Transportation Security Administration security regulations the museum is only open to passengers who have cleared the Security Checkpoint or to those on a Museum tour.

Tours are free and last about 1 1/2 hours.  Reservations to take this tour must be made at least two weeks in advance and can be scheduled by calling (260) 747-4146 ext. 439 during regular business hours.
