About the Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum

The new Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum — opening in 2023 — will honor Earhart’s aviation legacy and inspire all generations in the pursuit of flight.

The centerpiece will be Murielthe world’s last remaining Lockheed Electra 10-E — an aircraft identical to the plane Earhart flew on her final flight. Muriel is named for Amelia’s younger sister, Grace Muriel Earhart Morrissey.

Immersive STEM exhibits will take visitors through Earhart’s adventurous life — from growing up in Atchison, Kansas, to the height of her worldwide fame — as the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
