Museum: American Helicopter Museum

The American Helicopter Museum and Education Center is the nation’s premier aviation museum devoted exclusively to helicopters. We collect, restore and display historic aircraft and chronicle the origin and development of rotary wing aircraft.  Each year the Museum hosts thousands of visitors, school groups, families and senior citizens. Tourists of all ages from the U.S and abroad come here to witness the history and the future of the helicopter.  Through our library’s continually growing collection of documents, artifacts, films, memoirs and research the Museum serves as an important source of public information about rotary wing aircraft.

Appropriately the Museum is located in suburban Philadelphia where two of today’s major helicopter manufacturers have their roots, and where much of the earliest development of helicopters in the U.S took place.  Currently, the Museum displays over 35 civilian and military helicopters, autogiros and convertiplanes. The exhibits span the history of rotary wing aircraft from the earliest helicopters to the latest addition to our nation’s defense, the V-22 Osprey.
