The Millville Army Air Field Museum (MAAFM) preserves the history of the Millville Army Air Field, Millville, NJ, which was dedicated by the US War Department in 1941 as "America's First Defense Airport".  During its four-year existence, more than 10,000 men and women served here, with 1,500 pilots receiving advanced fighter training in P-47 Thunderbolt and P-40 Warhawk fighter planes.  The Museum honors the memory of 14 pilots who died while training in Millville.  Located in the original Base Headquarters Building the Museum displays a large collection of WWII aviation artifacts of local and national interest.  Programs and tours focus on educating the community about Millville's vital role in aviation history.  Expanded displays include items of interest from the Korean and Vietnam Wars. We are also known for the Millville Wheels & Wings Air Show which we are so proud to bring the community together.  Our hours are Tuesday through Sunday from 10am - 4pm.
