To create unique interactive exhibits based on the achievements of Gen. Spaatz and the 8th Army Air Force to attract both regional and national visitors to the museum.

  • We want visitors to have the sense of "being there" rather than viewing static exhibits of memorabilia.
  • We will have "cast members" in period uniforms, using idioms of the day and knowledge of the equipment used in a bomber.
  • We will feature walk-through exhibits and recreations with "sensory impact."
  • We will enable visitors to attend a pre-flight mission briefing, be in the cockpit, and act as waist gunners and bombardiers.
  • We will demonstrate how airmen overcame the challenges of the air war and its environment.
