Overview

The Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum is a museum focusing on aircraft and nuclear missiles of the U. S. Air Force. The objective of the Museum is to preserve and display historic aircraft, missiles, and space vehicles and provide STEM education sessions to the young generation. The Museum is a $29.5 million, 300,000-square-foot (28,000 m2) building that features a glass atrium, two aircraft display hangars, a traveling exhibit area, a children's interactive gallery, a 200-seat theater, a museum store, an aircraft restoration gallery, and a snack bar. The glass atrium is constructed of 525 glass panels that encase a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. The Museum hosts regular travel exhibitions and several special events throughout the year. The Museum's Education Department is committed to fueling the curiosity of children across the Midwest and to educating them in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Regular STEM sessions, workshops and camp programs are available at the Museum.

This museum is well worth a visit. It was better than we expected. In addition to a top-notch B-17, there were a lot of unique and personally-interesting exhibits. Planes I've seen nowhere else included a huge B-36 and a tiny XF-85 fighter/escort designed to be...More

A great selection of both old and modern aircraft and exhibits. Contains some more rare exhibits such as the B-36 and the Avro Vulcan. For an aviation lover, this is a must visit place.

This place blew us away! To be this close to aircraft that flew out of the bases in the Midwest was just fantastic! To be right there next to a B-14, a B-29 and a B-52 (that thing is HUGE) was awe inspiring. Really makes...More

This museum had lots of airplanes from the last 70-80 years that we had heard about and seen photos of, but never seen in real life. It was fascinating to see what was once state-of-the-art technology looking so old. Really helps one understand how things...More

I haven't seen the exhibits since I was a child probably thirty years ago. Back then it was actually at Offutt AFB and so many of the larger exhibits were outside. A big reason that I gave it 4 stars is that I'm looking back...More

Nice collection of planes, memorabilia, artifacts, and so much more detailing SAC and it's people. The planes are the draw, the people as the story. The museum could be helped by strategically placed lighting; many exhibits are just too dark and hard to see or...More

Probably the only way is a taxi but may be cheaper to rent a car. It is just off I -80 so very easy to get to. But is several miles from Onaha depending where you are in the city.

Unfortunately, unless you get a cab, there is no public bus route that comes to the Museum.
