Silent Wings Museum

Silent Wings Museum

Visitors can transport themselves into the era of swing music and patriotism and experience World War II as told by the glider pilots who lived it. Guests can view a restored WACO CG-4A, mainstay of the U.S. glider force that flew in every major invasion of the Second World War. The adventure begins in the theatre with a fifteen-minute program, Silent Wings: The Story of the World War II Glider Program. The story continues to unfold in the Timeline, Hangar and Combat Galleries. View photographs and artifacts, including a fully restored WACO CG-4A glider, airborne equipment, and our living exhibit: the British Horsa Glider restoration project.

We hope you enjoy our work.
