National Park Service Accepting Loans of Pearson Air Museum Aircraft and Artifacts
Contact: Theresa Langford, (360) 816-6252
The National Park Service is committed to reopening Pearson Air Museum as soon as possible. We are currently working on temporary exhibits that tie to the history of the site, drawing upon the more than two million archaeological and historical artifacts in the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site museum collection.
Any individuals who own items formerly on display in Pearson Air Museum are invited to loan them directly to the National Park Service, so they may be returned to the hangar building for the reopening of Pearson as a free public museum.
