Posted 12/16/2013 Printable Fact Sheet

Welcome to Hill Aerospace Museum!

Hill Aerospace Museum is located on the northwest corner of Hill Air Force Base, Utah, about five miles south of Ogden. The museum was founded in 1982 as a part of the United States Air Force Heritage Program and first opened to the public in 1987. It moved to its current facility in 1991. We annually welcome around 160,000 visitors, coming from every state and from many foreign countries. 

The Museum exhibits more than 90 military aircraft, missiles, and aerospace vehicles on the grounds and inside the Major General Rex A. Hadley Gallery and the Lindquist Stewart Fighter Gallery. Our collection also includes a wide variety of ordnance and munitions, an assortment of aerospace ground equipment, military vehicles, uniforms, and thousands of other historical artifacts.

Mission and Goals 

As a field museum of the United States Air Force Museum System, the mission of Hill Aerospace Museum is to portray the history of Hill Air Force Base, its tenant organizations, and the assignments of the Ogden Air Logistics Center.

Our goals are:

-- to meet the USAF Museum System requirements as defined by Air Force Instruction 84-103 Museum System 

-- to collect, preserve, and display historically significant USAF artifacts
to depict the significant role that Hill Air Force Base and the State of Utah have had in USAF history 

-- to foster a neighborly relationship between Hill AFB and its surrounding communities, thereby strengthening USAF public relations 

-- to provide an educational setting where visitors can learn more about the history, function, and mission of the United States Air Force, its role in our nation's defense, and its aircraft and how they function 

-- to maintain the highest standards of the museum profession and to serve as a leader in the museum community, encouraging cooperation among museums and promoting continuous sharing of ideas and information.
