National Warplane Museum
The National Warplane Museum is a warbird and military history museum in Geneseo NY. Founded in 1994, the museum restores, flies, and displays vintage military aircraft from the World War 2, Vietnam, and Korean War eras. Don’t let the name fool you though, the museum also has many other items from military history on display, not just aircraft. The museum is also home to an annual airshow dubbed, “The Greatest Show on Turf”. The grass runway provides viewers with surreal scenes and nostalgic experiences transport them back to times when these historic aircraft frequently operated from grass runways. As always, we recommend giving the museum a call before your visit.
Aside from the museum and their airshow, visitors will be pleased to hear the museum operates warbird rides. Warbird rides are seasonal and visitors should call in advance to schedule a ride. The Museum operates the famous C-47 name W7 which can be seen operating around the northeast in various airshows or community flyovers.
Many may have visited the museum when it was called the 1941 Historic Aircraft Group or remember visiting the National Warplane Museum in Elmira, NY. Members from the museum split and established the museum down in Elmira NY. In 2013, the name National Warplane Museum was reacquired and the National Warplane Museum in Geneseo has been operating under this name ever since. The previous owners of the name National Warplane Museum have been rebranded as Wings of Eagles Discovery Center.
