Aviation Hall of Fame and Museum of New Jersey

Aviation Hall of Fame and Museum of New Jersey

The Aviation Hall Of Fame & Museum of New Jersey was founded in 1972 and preserves New Jersey's aviation and space heritage. The museum displays historic aircraft, space equipment, artifacts, photographs, art and a model collection, many of which were donations from private sources. It is the first facility of its kind developed on a state level.[1] Its library has more than 4,000 volumes and hundreds of aviation video tapes. An annual expo is limited in actual flights due to its proximity to Newark International Airport.[1]

It is located at Teterboro Airport, the oldest operating airport in the Tri-State Region, at 400 Fred Wehran Drive, Teterboro, New Jersey.[2]
