Visit us on any Second Saturday at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Muesum and have lots of fun. Please join us!  Ride in antique cars, watch the antique planes take off and land, enjoy living history at its finest!

Join us the Second Saturday of each month when WAAAM gets the engines running. Action occurs between 10am and 2pm. Lunch is served between 11am and 1pm.

Second Saturdays throughout the winter will be held indoors. Weather permitting, cars and airplanes will be taken outside. Otherwise, there will be indoor events including demonstrations, special exhibits and hands on experiences for visitors.

Our antique aircraft, automobiles, motorcycles, tractors, military jeeps and engines all get their day in the sun when museum volunteers get to show visitors that this is not just a bunch of old, dead stuff ... that life goes on for our artifacts!

What Our Director Has to Say:

"A visit to WAAAM on a Second Saturday is bound to make you realize just how easy life is today. Take for instance, the process of starting a car. People don't even give it a thought these days, but in 1917, it may have taken a half an hour just to get the oil warm enough to crank a Model T's engine to life!

"Life was certainly slower in those days, and knowing about how life was back then helps us appreciate so much more what we have today.

"Please join us on a Second Saturday of the month ... or on any day ... and take a step back in time with us."

                  —Judy Newman, Museum Director
