The Commemorative Air Force Hangar and Museum in South St. Paul is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:30 am – 5 pm and is free!
The CAF was founded to acquire, restore and preserve in flying condition a complete collection of combat aircraft which were flown by all military services of the United States, and selected aircraft of other nations, for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations of Americans. Today, the Commemorative Air Force Minnesota Wing is home to six aircraft, a large motor pool fleet, and a unique collection of World War II artifacts that are on display.
Visitors will have the opportunity to get close to our rare collection of military aircraft, view our museum display cases, and see our motor pool vehicles. You may be able to witness our aircraft fly depending on the day. Living History Flight Experiences can be purchased in our gift shop for a once in a lifetime opportunity to actually fly in one of our rare airplanes. Since our hangar and museum are located at an actual operating airport, something interesting is always happening just outside our hangar door.
