Effective June 5th the Prairie Aviation Museum will open it’s Air Park (adjacent to the museum) to the public.  (We are hopeful that the inside museum will open soon.)  Guests wanting to enter the air park are required to make an appointment.  All state of Illinois COVID-19 guidelines will be in effect.  In light of these difficult times, there will be no charge for admittance.  Guests wishing to attend should call John Eckley at 309-530-2221 to make an appointment.  


Welcome to the Prairie Aviation Museum.  We hope you enjoy the display and exhibits inside the museum and the aircraft in the Air Park.  We have 8 aircraft and 3 helicopters on display.  We also have one piston and two jet engines on display.

At times, like the Open Cockpit Days, we display a Delta 880 simulator and other items we are restoring.

Please stop and join us for a visit, tour, or one of our Open Cockpit Days.
