Seven weeks and counting since the museum closed due to COVID-19.
May 1, 2020
Henry Ford once said, “When everything seems to be against you, remember that an airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.” It’s been six weeks since we’ve closed our doors to you, our visiting public, as we continue to observe Gov. Ned Lamont’s executive order to close through May 20, 2020.
But while the exhibit hangars are still in the dark, our attitude is “Open for Business!” I invite you to join us on , where our mission of preserving, engaging, and inspiring continues on this new page on our website. The goal is to provide you and your family with educational resources, fun activities, virtual tours, and information about our collection and exhibits that you may not know. Each week more content is added, and we continue to stay engaged through our Facebook and Instagram platforms until the day we can again open our doors.
The New England Air Museum will be better than ever on the day we reopen. We are actively working to complete parts of our New England Women in Aviation exhibit, and we are adding amazing new technology to our Kaman exhibit. We are also working hard to reschedule as many of our missed events as possible, so check our events calendar periodically for updates.
We hope you and your loved ones are well, and that together our staff, volunteers, members, and community will get through this. We hope to see you back soon!
