Port Townsend Aero Museum

The Port Townsend Aero Museum began operations in 2001, founded by experienced aircraft restorers Jerry and Peggy Thuotte. With an initial donation of six flying antique aircraft and several restoration projects, the museum quickly attracted a group of dedicated young volunteers. The youth mentorship program grew alongside the collection. The museum was originally based out of a scattering of hangars at the west end of the airport. Fundraising for a new building was a major undertaking, with proceeds coming from contract work, rummage sales, online auctions and individual donations. After seven years of hard work by museum volunteers and contributors, along with generous support from the community and local contractors, we were proud to open our new $3.5 million facility to the public in the summer of 2008.
