The main galleries contain some of the more fragile aircraft, detailed models, dioramas, historical artifacts and memorabilia, and photographic displays.
A sampling of the exhibits are the recently completed lunar landing and arctic exploration exhibits; the DePischoff "flying motorcycle"; the Amelia Earhart Exhibit, and a 32' scale model of the Japanese aircraft carrier "Akagi."
The Museum also contains some hands-on exhibits including a mock-up of a 1910 Von Pomer airplane, electronic "spotter" aircraft identification, and a Simulated Reality Vehicle (SRV), which treats occupants to a video and ride that makes them feel as if they are part of the action.
The Restoration Center houses aircraft in various stages of restoration. In addition, the museum boasts the most extensive aviation library in the state, with a wealth of publications, aviation art, and aviation records.
