Pearson Air Museum is Part of Fort Vancouver National Site
Pearson Air Museum is located at the Pearson Field and is part of Fort Vancouver National Site. It specializes on aircraft made before or during World War II, housed in the country's oldest wooden aircraft hangar, built in 1918 and used as a hangar since 1921. Exhibits here include a small collection of well-restored aircraft.
Pearson Air Museum is dedicated to the pilots who flew in open cockpits, daredevils who barnstormed, tried experimental flights, and became the aces of World Wars I and II.
Pearson Air Museum is operated by the Fort Vancouver National Trust, a non-profit organization. The museum is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed Sunday through Tuesday).
