Saturday, June 22ndA new exhibit created on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the opening of the National Naval Aviation Museum is a veritable scrapbook telling our story.
Golden anniversaries only come around once, and in this case of the National Naval Aviation Museum, this year marks that momentous milestone. While the museum was established with it's mission outlined by the authority of the Secretary of the Navy in 1962, not until June 8, 1963, did it open it's doors to the public for the first time. That fifty year story is told in a new exhibit that has opened on the museum Quarterdeck.
The opening of this exhibit is part of a year-long celebration of our 50th birthday. On June 22nd, it will Kick-Off complete with gift giveaways and the cutting of a birthday cake.
