Pearson Air Museum is home to training, military, experimental, and private aircraft from the Twentieth Century. Exhibits include aircraft from all over the world, a model of the lumber mill used to produce biplanes for World War I, military artifacts from both World Wars, kids activities, and more. When you step outside, there is a monument to the first trans-polar flight by Valery Chkalov, during which he and two others flew from Moscow, Russia and landed at Pearson Airfield.
Pearson Airfield is the oldest continuously operating airport in the Pacific Northwest. The airfield opened in 1905 and is still an active airport.
Visitors may enter the museum for free, though donations are gladly accepted.
