Although the Aviation Wing of the Marietta Museum of History does not officially open until sometime early next year, the Museum and its volunteers have been making quite a bit of progress and would like to show it off. On August 20th and 21st, from 10am to 3pm, the Museum will be opening the doors at the aviation site for visitors to come out for a FREE day.
This is a chance to bring the family and explore some of the aircraft as well as the progress of the site thus far. There are four aircraft that will be open for visitors to enter and explore; The C-141 StarLifter plane, JetStar plane, S-3 Viking plane, and the H-1 Iroquois helicopter. Volunteers will also be available to give guided tours around the site.
There will be booths with information on the Marietta Museum of History and the Aviation Wing site. In addition, the non-profit, Operation Stars and Stripes, Inc., will have games for the children, letter writing to soldiers overseas, and wish-list of items that are needed for our military men and women.
