We have several important Museum updates:
The Museum will be re-opening on Wednesday, July 1st at 10am after a temporary three-month closure due to coronavirus restrictions. Museum capacity will be limited and all visitors, volunteers, and staff will receive temperature checks upon arrival. All visitors are asked to wear a face mask and maintain 6’ social distance.
Champaign Air Museum has been invited to fly the B-25 Champaign Gal over our nation’s capital during the military aircraft flyovers at the July 4th Salute to America celebration in Washington, D.C. Pilot-in-command of this flight will be 747 pilot (ret.) Bill Clark, and second-in-command will be Navy pilot (ret.), Bill Weidenhammer. Joining them in the aircraft will be Crew Chief, Randy Kemp, and Assistant Crew Chief, Tom Printz.
The Museum will be closed on Saturday, July 4th.
The 8th Annual Gala on July 25th is SOLD OUT! Thank you for your support.
We're pleased to announce two exciting collaborations this summer with regional partners in aviation and WWII history:
In partnership with the National Aviation Heritage Area (NAHA) and their regional tourism campaign, #StayLocalGoFar, the Museum is featuring a new Boarding Pass promotion for visitors and residents within driving distance of our region’s national story. For a limited time, sign up for your free Boarding Pass at www.visitNAHA.com/boarding-pass. Print or download the Boarding Pass and bring it with you to receive 10% off in the CAM store!
This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the end of World War II and the Museum is a proud participant in the Homefront to Warfront Trail Tour. Ten of Ohio’s museums featuring WWII history have joined forces to offer this new, drive-it-yourself trail to celebrate the historic anniversary. The tour kicks-off this summer and runs through the end of the year, but will highlight veteran recognition from August 15 to September 2, the 75th Anniversaries of Victory in Japan Day and the formal signing of the Instrument of Surrender on board the USS Missouri. In total, there are 500 miles of WWII history. Trail maps will be available at each location or you can download a map at https://tinyurl.com/yagjsjs8.
We look forward to seeing you at the Museum! Sincerely, The CAM Team
