This Year's Project: Electronic Display Update

About Our Organization

Mid America Museum of Aviation & Transportation (located at Sioux Gateway Airport- BG Bud Day Field)  was founded in 1990 and continues to be focused on air and ground transportation history with special emphasis on the development of both modes of transportation in the Siouxland area and world-wide.  Education of local citizens, students grade school through college  and visitors from around the world is our primary goal.

The 2023 Mid America Museum of Aviation & Transportation need is for new and updates of STEM electronics in the BG George 'Bud' Day display,
