Hickory – The Hickory Aviation Museum will be open this Thursday, July 4th, from 10 am to 3 pm. We could think of no better way to honor our veterans who gave so much for the freedoms we share than to stay open to help in the celebration of our nation’s birth. Come see our US Navy P-3 Orion Submarine Hunter, our one of a kind XF-15C Navy fighter, our other aircraft (each with its own history)and many of the static displays inside the museum.

This is also a good time to sign up if you want to become a volunteer member of our museum. Our museum is getting better, our focus remains the same – to honor our veterans and those presently serving, to continuously educate all those interested and to protect and preserve the many artifacts and aircraft at our museum. The Hickory Aviation Museum is located at Hickory Regional Airport, 3101 9th Ave. Dr. NW, Hickory, NC 28601.
