The U.S. Army Aviation Museum maintains a collection of over 160 military aircraft, including one of the largest collections of military helicopters in the world. Approximately 50 beautifully restored, historic and one-of-a-kind aircraft, are proudly displayed both inside the Museum's 70,000 square feet of exhibit space and outside on the Museum's grounds. The collection includes many significant examples of early research efforts and developments in rotary wing technology and the evolution of the helicopter. Our public galleries represent the Army's involvement in military aviation from the beginning days with the Wright brothers and the early combat aircraft of World War I, up to the highly technological machines such as the AH-64 Apache and the UH-60 Blackhawk flown by Army Aviators today.

We arrived to see this and we're told that we couldn't because we are British - we don't have a US social security number. The clownish security guard appeared to take pleasure in telling us. What an unfriendly and ungrateful ally the US is!

The layout of this Museum is really good. Much thought was put into the props and what message they would like to relay. Rucker's facility has many historic planes and helicopters. They even have 2 prototypes that weren't used.

Museum with several helicopters and planes. Neat displays and several memorials to fallen heroes. Be warned, it's on a military base and you have to get a pass before you can enter.
