Welcome to the Hickory Aviation Museum located at the Hickory Regional Airport(HKY) in Hickory North Carolina.  We are a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Tax Exempt Organization.

We are dedicated to maintaining the facts and artifacts of the Golden Age of Aviation. The Museum provides a unique opportunity for all generations to learn and appreciate aviation history.  We achieve this by adding new exhibits and aircraft on a regular basis.  

We invite you to come visit and even become a member of the Hickory Aviation Museum. With your help, we can all preserve the past for future generations to come.

The Blue Angels #5  F/A-18A Legacy Hornet BuNo 162411 is on permanent display!  The F-4B Phantom II has also been returned from restoration, so come see these beautiful aircraft!  Also, the inside museum and gift shop are now back open following Covid protocols for visitor capacity and temperature checks and we're now open Wednesday-Sunday.
