Hill Aerospace Museum is located on approximately 30 acres of the northwest corner of Hill Air Force Base, five miles south of Ogden, Utah. The Museum, which opened in 1986, was founded in 1981 as a part of the United States Air Force Heritage Program. The Utah Museum moved to its current facility in 1991 and hosted its five millionth visitor in the spring of 2019. There were 359,181 visitors, coming from every state and from many foreign countries, who visited the Museum last year. Not only does the Museum have more than 70 aircraft on display in its two inside galleries and outside air park, it exhibits thousands of artifacts depicting the history of aviation of the United States Air Force, Hill Air Force Base and the State of Utah.
We are excited to announce that the Hill Aerospace Museum has achieved accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), the highest national recognition afforded the nation’s museums. Accreditation signifies excellence to the museum community, to governments, funders, outside agencies, and to the museum-going public.
Of the nation’s estimated 33,000 museums, approximately 1,070 are accredited. Hill Aerospace Museum is one of only six museums accredited in Utah.
