Planning for Takeoff!

As the Museum prepares for it’s Grand Opening in April 2023, we are searching for brave aviators to help test the exhibits and activations!

So what exactly is a “beta” visitor?! Beta is a term commonly used to describe a special product that is nearly complete, but not quite ready for public release. As our beta visitor, you will not only have the chance to experience the Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum before it opens, but you will help us with our preflight checks as we test the equipment and make sure all exhibit operations are in top flying condition.

Following your visit, we appreciate your time to complete a brief survey. We look forward to hearing your thoughts. What did you like best? Where might we make improvements before the grand opening?
