The new 59,000 square foot Airborne and Special Operations Museum, designed to preserve and interpret the history of all U.S. Airborne forces, contains exhibit spaces, a large-screen theatre, gift shop, storage/conservation areas, workshop, and conference and administrative spaces. Unique features include a separate “Simulator” theatre with a parabolic (wrap-around) projection screen and motorized seating. Significant structural achievements include the suspension of several large aircraft from the ceiling of the exhibit space. The exposed steel structure reflects the form of the “jump towers” used by paratroopers during training.

Exhibit design provided by Design and Production Incorporated.
