Pearson Air Museum and the Jack Murdock Aviation Center help visitors connect to the history of aviation at Pearson Field. From its roots as a civilian air field, to its history as the site of the Spruce Mill and its transformation into an important Army Air Corps 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 at Pearson Field. These events are further brought to life with four pre-1930 airplanes that display the incredibly fragile, complex, and daring nature of aviation in the early 20th century.
