EAA’s Attic — Air Adventure Museum Sign

While our annual fly-in and convention moved to Oshkosh in 1970, our headquarters remained in Hales Corners, Wisconsin, until the opening of the EAA Aviation Center, including what was then known as the EAA Air Adventure Museum, in 1983. In a poem dedicated to “the museum and the dreamers behind it,” Academy Award-winning actor Cliff Robertson described the museum as a “cathedral of boyhood dreams.” The museum is now known as the EAA Aviation Museum, but this original sign reminds all of us of that momentous homecoming more than 35 years ago.
