WAAAMies, or all the folks that help make the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum great, are awesome! Thank you!!! To Our Founding Members,

Thanks for your Generous Support!

Thanks to all of the individuals, families, and businesses who have given so generously to make the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum (WAAAM) a place for all to enjoy.

Through the initial contributions and ongoing support of our founders, members and volunteers, WAAAM is able to bring back to life some of the most amazing antique aircraft and automobiles of the past. As a result, we're able to delight and fascinate visitors from around the world and educate people of all ages about the history of flying and driving.

Just as important, due to the contributions of our founders and members, WAAAM is able to contribute to the education, culture, and community pride of people who call the Columbia River Gorge home. We take pride in knowing that we're doing our part to make the Gorge a great place to live.

We could not be doing it without the generosity of our founders and members.  THANKS so much!
