The National Park Service has a simple goal for Pearson Air Museum: to reopen its doors to the public as soon as possible.

Under National Park Service management, the museum will be open and free to the public. We are saddened that the exhibits were removed, but the heart of Pearson remains: the buildings and land where history happened. Over the next few weeks, we will be working to chart a course for the future, including educational programs and temporary exhibits.

In the meantime, Pearson Air Museum is available for special events. The National Park Service has extensive experience managing special events at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, permitting 90 events last year that had a meaningful connection to the park's purpose and complied with applicable laws, regulation, and policy.

If you are interested in holding your event at the national park, including Pearson, please contact Kimm Fox-Middleton at (360) 816-6243 or by email here. Permitting information can be found on our website by clicking here.
