The American Heritage Museum presents World War I and Early Aviation Event Weekend at our museum and airfield in Hudson / Stow, MA!

This weekend we will showcase the original 1917 Nieuport 28 - America's first and oldest fighter aircraft. We aim to fly it each day* for our visitors. We will also pull out the 1909 Curtiss Pusher for an operation exhibition. There will be other organizations bring and display their accurate World War I artifacts, equipment and replica aircraft with original rotary engines.

We will also be bringing some of the original rare WWI uniforms and flight clothing of noted World War I aviators that is part of the Parks Collection that has moved to the American Heritage Museum. Such examples are the original uniform of Douglas Campbell, America's First Ace; and the original leather flight coat of Captain Eddie Rickenbacker.

Gates open at 9 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. each day. Demonstrations and schedules will be firmed up as we get closer to the event.

All three museums will be open: The American Heritage Museum, The Historic Aviation Hangar and Classic Automobile Barn. This is a unique opportunity to see some of the world's most rare aircraft, extraordinary American classic automobiles, historic tanks, armored vehicles, military artifacts and much more.

There is over 100,000 square feet of space within the American Heritage Museum and Hangar combined.

Food and beverage will be available for purchase on site and picnics are allowed.

*Flight demonstrations are fair weather dependent. Flight demonstrations are subject to change.
