LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Aviation Museum of Kentucky announced its hours of operation for the months of January through March, 2018.
Effective Tuesday, January 2, 2018, the museum is open from 11 am until 4 pm, Tuesday-Friday. Saturday hours are 10 am until 5 pm, and Sunday hours are 1 pm until 5 pm.
The winter hours of operation for the museum affect weekdays only. “This is the best use of our available docents and volunteers,” said board chair Jim McCormick. “The museum continues to be open every day of the week except Monday, a closure day throughout the calendar year. We welcome groups and individuals to our indoor displays of both civil and military aircraft.”
During the first quarter of 2018, guests can view progress on the restoration of an A3D Skywarrior, a Vietnam War-era plane used by the US Navy in a number of roles. Also during the same time, the museum will “go to the dogs” with a new tabletop exhibit on military working dogs.
The Aviation Museum of Kentucky is located at 4029 Airport Road, adjacent to Blue Grass Airport in Lexington. It is the official aviation museum of the Commonwealth as well as home to the Kentucky Aviation Hall of Fame, and operates as a non-profit corporation.
