Welcome to the Edward J. Peterson Air and Space Museum, Colorado’s oldest aviation museum! We preserve and portray the rich aviation and space history of Colorado Springs and Peterson Air Force Base. From our barnstormer beginnings in the Roaring Twenties, through the daring exploits of our World War II pilots and into the modern space era, our exhibits are sure to capture your attention.
