EAA Aviation Museum Temporarily Closed, Several Events Cancelled Due to COVID-19
March 26, 2020 - On Tuesday, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers issued a “Safer at Home” Order that significantly limited public gatherings as part of a continuing effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 through the coronavirus. As part of that order, which is in force through April 24, public gathering places such as museums are closed. The health and safety of EAA's staff, volunteers, members, and visitors is the top priority at this time. The museum and headquarters facility will be closed to the public until that date, or until such time that an updated order is issued.
The EAA staff, including member services, are working remotely or from home. Our goal is to maintain services for members, EAA chapters, and others at the highest levels possible. That includes publication of EAA Sport Aviation and other EAA magazines, updates to the EAA websites, and other member benefits. We do appreciate your continuing understanding and patience as we work through in what in many ways is an unprecedented situation.
We encourage all members to follow COVID-19 guidance from their local health officials and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
