The Marietta Museum of History Aviation Wing features a variety of civilian and military aircraft from the latter half of the twentieth century. The 15+ acre park also features several examples of aircraft that were produced right here in Marietta. The first aircraft produced in Marietta were produced in the early 1940’s by Bell Aircraft. Aircraft production continued to grow with Lockheed Martin from the 1950’s to present.
Aviation has been an integral part of Marietta’s history, and continues to be a prominent industry in the area. The goal of Marietta Museum of History Aviation Wing is to tell the aviation story of our history and allow visitors to explore this important part of our community.
Open Thursday, May 5, 2016 at 10 am. The Aviation Wing is open to visitors Thursday through Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm.
Admission is free. There is a suggested contribution of $5 per vehicle with the funds going towards the maintenance of the grounds.
