American Helicopter Museum & Education Center
Visit the home of America’s largest collection of helicopters. It is a one-of-a-kind experience. A great place for families, kids can climb aboard helicopters of all kinds for a truly unique hands-on experience. The museum’s display of over 40 civilian and military helicopters, autogiros and convertaplanes fascinates visitors of all ages. This is a museum of unique science and technology of rotary wing aviation with two of today’s three major helicopter manufacturers tracing their roots to the greater Philadelphia area.
The Museum features many of the earliest rotary aircraft including the prototype for the first mass-produced helicopter and the second successful helicopter to fly in the United States.
Appropriately, the Museum is located in suburban Philadelphia, where much of the earliest development of helicopters in the United States was centered. With its continually growing collection of documents, artifacts, films and memoirs, the Museum’s research library serves the nation as its single public source of rotary wing information.
