It takes a lot to put any kind of show on the road, and the same goes for the Spirit of Flight Mobile Museum.
The Mobile Museum has been to dozens of airshows, car shows, malls, schools, retirement homes, ceremonies and much more since it was put together in 2009. Originally donated to the museum by Dr. Michael Bertz, the 20’ enclosed trailer was transformed into a “mini” version of the Spirit of Flight museum. Callie Page earned her Girl Scouts Silver Award by designing, cleaning and painting, and setting up the layout for visitors to enjoy.
Over 50 artifacts are transported to events to give visitors a flavor of the Spirit of Flight collection and
encourage them to visit the main museum facility. It takes half a day to get the mobile museum set up to take it on the road. Then there is the hook up, transportation, setup and later teardown, plus manning of the
mobile museum. It is big job, and to date over 5000 visitors have toured the SOF Mobile Museum to great acclaim.
Look for the Spirit of Flight Mobile Museum during the summer months, and contact the museum for information on how to get the Mobile Museum to an event.
