The Museum of Aviation, located at Robins
Air Force Base, opened to the public in 1984
with 20 aircraft on display in an open field
and another 20 that were in various stages of
restoration. Today, four full-size hangars house
more than 85 historic aircraft, missiles and
climb-in cockpits that that are visited by more
than 600,000 patrons every year. The Museum is a place that honors Veterans and their
families and reminds our Airmen of their legendary Air Force heritage.
The most popular aircraft in the museum is the actual SR71 Blackbird that broke the world speed record in 1975 by going 2,193.2 miles per hour… that’s approximately 3.3 times the speed of sound! Other popular aircraft on display are the F15, B29, B52, B1 and the C130 Hercules. It can take up to six years to fully restore an aircraft, and lots of volunteers on the ground. Visitors will also enjoy exploring history with exhibits, videos, virtual reality simulations and more.
Located just south of Macon, the Museum of Aviation is a hands-on, interactive experience that can be enjoyed by everyone. Plan your trip today, and remember, admission is free!
