Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum Exhibits Provide Insight to the Region’s Aviation History

The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum has been providing a first-hand view of the region’s aviation history for over 30 years.  The museum, located in historic Curtiss-Wright Hangar 2 at St. Louis Downtown Airport, tells the story of aviation development in St. Louis and Metro East Illinois from the 1920s to the present using period artifacts and full-size aircraft.  The gallery features displays from McDonnell Aircraft Corporation, TWA, Ozark and other locally-owned aerospace and aviation companies.  In the hangar, there are two working Link Trainers, a restored F-4 Phantom II jet cockpit, a rare Meyers OTW biplane and other aircraft exhibits.  The museum welcomes visitors Friday through Sunday, 10am-4pm.
