The Hagerstown Aviation Museum’s goal of preserving local aviation history continues to be the focus and mission. Located at 18450 Showalter Road, the museum has taken up residence in the 1943 Fairchild Dome Hangar. At this time, museum aircraft and exhibits are available to the public during museum events only. The museum hangar is currently under rehabilitation and not open to the public with regular hours. Make sure to go check out their website for updates and upcoming events!

We are located off Interstate 81, PA exit 1, between Hagerstown, MD and the PA State Line along US Route 11. Chapter 36 operations are located on the Hagerstown Airport, in the EAA hangar on the (west apron), T hangar area.
