Hill Aerospace Museum adheres closely to the principles of preventive conservation, whereby we seek to prevent, reduce, or mitigate the effects of all the factors that, every day, threaten the continued survival of our collection objects. Many of our aircraft undergo refurbishment or complete restoration, but we do not conduct remedial conservation on other objects in the collections. For that we rely on the Conservation Laboratory at the National Museum of the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio.
Our collection artifacts and aircraft are exhibited in five eras corresponding to our interpretive timeline: The Beginnings, World War II, Dawn of the Jet Age, The Cold War, and Keeping the Peace.
Most of our artwork is shown in the Lindquist Art Gallery, although many other pieces are displayed at various other locations throughout our buildings.
