The new site was built to support the museum's mission statement: "Serve the public through preservation and display of historic air and space artifacts and through educational programs to foster the spirit of flight in today's youth and in future generations." The museum worked with its web site designer, Image Excellence, and merchant services provider Prolific Business Solutions over several months to add interactive features such as news blog, archives, event calendar and web store. Always a work in progress, the museum's web site will soon feature samples of the historic displays and archives that reside within the physical walls of Curtiss-Wright Hangar 2, scholarly works and additional educational materials for all ages.
Although the museum staff would love for you to personally visit the museum, they would also like for everyone to visit the web site to get an appreciation for what the museum has to offer. Also, please consider purchasing an item from the web store or making a generous tax-deductible contribution to the preservation of the rich aerospace history of the St. Louis area.
Check the site often to keep current on area aerospace-related events and learn about how the museum continues to accomplish its stated mission.
