Ask About Booking Exhibits

The Hoosier Air Museum officially closed its doors permanently on December 3, 2019. Many of the displays have been moved to their new home at the J. Kruse Education Center at Kruse Plaza as the Hoosier Air Experience, while others will find homes across the country, including the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C.

A few of the aircraft, including a Cobra helicopter will find a permanent residence at Kruse Plaza as part of their military history interactive learning exhibit. The remainder of the planes will be auctioned off by Worldwide Auctioneers to aid in funding for The Launch Pad at the J. Kruse Education Center.

The Launch Pad will serve as a career-exploration opportunity for veterans returning from active duty to participate in career coaching, allowing them to investigate careers that they might be able to jump into after their service.
