Aerospace museum to offer great showcase for local aviation history at old Falls terminal.


Tonawanda News — “The re-location of the Niagara Aerospace Museum to the old terminal is really a win-win for Niagara County,” added Bill Ross, chairman of the Niagara County Legislature. “Not only will the museum further advance the airport complex itself, but adding it to the economic engine of this County, including all of the shovel-ready sites in close proximity, I can think of no better place. WNY and specifically Niagara County was a birthplace of early aviation, and the Niagara Aerospace Museum will be a great asset to the county’s economic development and tourism. “

The re-location is funded primarily from private source donations to the Niagara Aerospace Museum. The Museum will shortly begin construction for reformatting on the inside to provide visitors a time-line format for visitation. There will be between 8 and 10 aircrafts displayed among other artifacts, with use for displaying vintage planes on the runway outside upon visitation.
