HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah – Museums across Northern Utah will be offering special programs, activities, and exhibits Sept. 13-18 to celebrate the distinctive histories preserved in our local institutions.

As a participant of this event, the Hill Aerospace Museum will offer unique experiences throughout the week that will highlight the mission and history of Hill Air Force Base.  Beginning Sept. 14, the museum will open select aircraft to allow guests to get a close-up look inside, including its most recent addition, the F-117 “Nighthawk.”

On Sept. 16, the museum will remain open after regular hours – from 4:30 to 8 p.m. – so guests will have an opportunity to hear a first-hand account of flying America’s most advanced stealth fighter jet, see inside some of our most iconic aircraft, meet museum staff, and enjoy complimentary refreshments. At 6:30 p.m., Capt. Emily “Banzai” Thompson, the first female pilot to fly the F-35 in combat, will speak about her experiences as an F-35 pilot with the 388th Fighter Wing.

Hill Aerospace Museum is excited to participate in the Top of Utah Museum Week. For additional information or inquiries, call 801-775-3570, or visit https://www.aerospaceutah.org/ or our social media outlets. Museum operating hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free.
