New treasures

By Jenny on 08/09/2011

The AAM team left their trusty home behind to seek new treasures from the collections store.

Over the years since the American Air Museum opened in 1997, former American airmen and their families have occasionally gifted their mementoes to the museum. Currently, there is not much space to display small objects, but this is one of the things that we hope to remedy through our project, so that more individual stories can be told with these personal objects.

And so we begin...

Hello and welcome to the first posting on our brand new project website (Ed: This refers to the old AAM project micro-site). We plan to bring you news from the project as it develops. Over the next few months we will be researching the stories that we will be featuring in the redisplayed museum, as well as revisiting past research on the remarkable aircraft in our collection. Do check back and see how we are getting on.
