Pearson Air Museum and the Jack Murdock Aviation Center connect visitors to the history of aviation at Pearson Field. From its roots as a military air field, to its history as the site of the Spruce Mill and its transformation into a civilian field, Pearson Air Museum helps provide a detailed look into the golden age of aviation at Pearson Field.
Through amazing hand-painted murals and exhibit panels, visitors gain a chronological perspective of the many varied aviation events that occurred here. These events are further brought to life with five early 20th century airplanes that display the incredibly fragile, complex, and daring nature of early aviation.
