The Naval Aviation Museum Foundation is the sole benefactor to the National Naval Aviation Museum-and the fuel that allows the museum to take flight. The foundation is responsible for funding all museum operation, expansion and activity. The foundation works diligently to raise funding through gifts and memberships. All funding, aside from foundation staffing and operational costs, goes to the operation, maintenance and enhancement of the museum, including museum expansion, aircraft preservation, conservation and maintenance, development of new exhibits and support of day to day functions-including custodial services, marketing, operation of the Museum's various attractions (such as our Naval Aviation Memorial Giant Screen Theater, flight simulators, Blue Angels 4D Experience and Flight Deck gift shop), as well as the production of major events at the Museum. We also support STEM education through the National Flight Academy, a cutting edge, aviation-themed learning experience.
