Founded in 1972 by Pat Reilly, the Aviation Hall of Fame and Museum is dedicated to preserving and teaching the history of flight in New Jersey. This facility is packed to the rafters with air and space equipment as well as artifacts, models, photographs and art prints. There is also a library filled with 5,000 books and hundreds of videotapes. 

After entering the building, visitors are escorted into a small auditorium to view an interesting video highlighting New Jerseyans who played a part in the state's aviation and aeronautic history. From there, a tour guide points out many of the exhibits in the museum's Great Room. Some examples are the cracked nose cone from the Spirit of St. Louis a model of the Hindenburg airship, which was destroyed by fire in 1937, and a Bell XI rocket similar to the one used by Chuck Yeager to break the sound barrier in 1947. One of the hands on attractions is the Little Cutup a small aircraft that children can board. 

The AHOF inductees gallery, itself, is quite impressive. In this very special room are 139 bronze plaques honoring those whose aeronautical achievements have brought honor and fame to New Jersey.




On the second floor is a celebration of women pilots, as well as an example of a flight attendant's uniform from days gone by.  A glass case is filled with awards and memorabilia that belonged to Arthur Godfrey, a radio and television personality who also happened to be a pilot.  Visitors can learn all about ?arnstorming and find out which of New Jersey's famous aviators got their start this way.

In the backyard of the museum is a M.A.S.H. (mobile army surgical hospital) exhibit, complete with mess tent, trucks, and a Bell 47 helicopter, as was used in the Korean war. While outside, you can walk onboard a Martin 202 aircraft from the 1950's. Children and adults can learn a lot in this hands on display. 


The exhibits listed here are just a small portion of what can be seen at this facility. All in all, a visit to the Aviation Hall of Fame and Museum is a great way to learn about the history of aviation in New Jersey, and a fun way as well!
