About Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum
In the legacy of famed aviatrix Amelia Earhart, the Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum will educate, inspire and empower all generations in the pursuit of flight. In the summer of 2016, the Atchison Amelia Earhart Foundation acquired Muriel, the last remaining 1935 Lockheed Electra 10-E aircraft in the world – the same model aircraft Amelia flew on her final, fateful flight around the world.
The Hangar Museum’s vision is robust: to develop an aviation museum within the Atchison Amelia Earhart Airport to showcase Muriel while creating an educational and visitor experience that honors the accomplishments of Amelia Earhart.
The Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum will encourage young minds to achieve the seemingly impossible while serving as an economic development initiative that will enhance the vibrant culture, commerce and entertainment Atchison currently offers.
