Cavanaugh Flight Museum
The Cavanaugh Flight Museum in Addison has been showcasing an extensive collection of aircraft, artwork, and artifacts in the Addison Airport since 1993. The museum has a collection that includes items from World War I all the way through Vietnam.
All of the aircraft on display at the Cavanaugh Flight Museum are maintained in air worthy condition, and most are still flown on a regular basis, and many of them are in high demand for photo sessions and air shows due to their great condition and historical value. Many of the aircraft were fully restored and the restoration efforts have won awards around the country, among the award winners are two "Grand Champion Warbird" trophy winners from the Experimental Aircraft Association Fly-In at Oshkosh, Wisconsin, a D-25 Mitchell and a F9F-2 Panther.
Admission to the Cavanaugh Flight Museum is $6.00 for adults, $3.00 for children from 6-12 years of age, and children under 5 years old are admitted to the museum free of charge. The museum is open Monday through Saturday from 9am to 5pm and on Sunday from 11am to 5pm*. The exhibits are well documented, making for an informative self-guided tour, but guided tours can be arranged for large groups with museum volunteers acting as guides.
