The Port Townsend Aero Museum preserves aviation history in the Pacific Northwest. Located 45 miles northwest of Seattle, flanked by the Olympic Mountains and the Puget Sound, the museum contributes to a vibrant community.
Our youth mentorship program is second to none. Young adults participate in all aspects of operations, including restoration and flight activities.
Our collection includes a variety of antique and classic aircraft. We regularly fly those aircraft that are safe and airworthy. Restorations are performed in-house by an expert group of mechanics and volunteers. Our shop also performs contract restoration work.
The museum is publicly owned and receives no tax-based funding. If you like our program, please consider contributing.
