Research Library

Library Mission
The Research Library of Planes of Fame Air Museum encourages the use of its materials to advance aviation education for Museum staff, volunteers, members, as well as the public. The mission of the Research Library is to collect, preserve, and make available its resources for the research of aeronautical knowledge.

About the Library
For decades, Museum members and supporters have been donating their aviation books to Planes of Fame Air Museum to provide an aviation research library to the public. Diligent volunteers manage a library that contains over 10,000 volumes aircraft-related books with more resources being added in the future.

Library Hours

Tuesdays and Saturdays 10:00 am until 4:00 pm
