EAA AirVenture Museum
The EAA AirVenture Museum is a museum dedicated to the preservation and display of historic and experimental aircraft as well as antiques, classics, and warbirds located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, adjacent to Wittman Regional Airport. EAA founder Paul Poberezny proposed the idea of the EAA Air Museum-Air Education center in August 1958. In 1982, Paul's son, Tom Poberezny, led the campaign to build the current updated museum and headquarters, which was opened in 1983. The museum's collection displays more than 200 aircraft. The AirVenture Museum is a key tourist attraction in Oshkosh and is a center of activity throughout the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh event each summer.
Young Eagles Program
The Young Eagles Program is designed for children between the ages of 8 and 17. Young Eagles may receive a free flight from EAA's network of volunteer pilots.
The EAA library has been open to EAA members since 1985.
Pioneer Airport, an old-time grass airstrip, displays some of the oldest aircraft the museum has. Located adjacent to Wittman Field, it is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
