Our Mission to $10 Million!


Keep checking back to watch us reach our goal!

THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE MIGHTY EIGHTH AIR FORCE HAS A MIGHTY HISTORY…

For more than twenty-five years, the museum has not only preserved and shared the stories of the Mighty Eighth Air Force, it has connected people to the heroes whose courage, unwavering sense of duty and extraordinary sacrifice saved the world.

AND IT HAS A MIGHTY FUTURE AHEAD OF IT!

Maximum Effort – A $10 Million visionary initiative.

With you as a partner, the museum will experience a transformation:


  • Expanding the museum for an improved visitor experience and state-of-the-art permanent exhibitions that invite audiences to step into the shoes of heroes;

  • Furnishing greater public access to and engagement with the most significant collection of World War II Eighth Air Force material history in the world; and

  • Growing the endowment to ensure the museum’s viability in perpetuity.
