Aviation Comes Alive

The EAA Aviation Museum is far from a dusty archive. It's alive and vibrant with speakers, movies, special events, and more.

Christmas in the Air

Get into the holiday spirit at EAA’s annual Christmas in the Air, a free community event for all ages!

Christmas in the Air

Join us for a special day of holiday cheer as you travel throughout the EAA Aviation Museum winter wonderland. Roam the museum to explore the exhibits and decorations. Enjoy more than a dozen local musical, choral, and dance groups performing on various stages! Stop in to Eagle Hangar Mezzanine for cookies and milk and get your face painted from 10 a.m.-12 p.m.

Amidst all the fun, do not miss the arrival of Santa Claus as he flies in by helicopter at noon to visit with all of the children! Have your picture taken with Santa, or take your own family photos in staged areas throughout the museum.
