The International Women's Air & Space Museum is located in the terminal of Burke Lakefront Airport, only seconds from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and the Great Lakes Science Center. We welcome you to visit us and discover how Women's Air & Space History is more than Sally Ride and Amelia Earhart.
Our Mission
The mission of the International Women's Air & Space Museum is to preserve the history of women in aviation and space and to document their continuing contributions today and in the future.

Our History
More than 25 years ago the idea of preserving the history of women in aviation was just a dream. Since then, memorabilia and historical artifacts have been collected, preserved and stored. Today this dream is a reality. The International Women’s Air & Space Museum, Inc. (IWASM) began as a committee of Ninety-Nines who started saving memorabilia and history of women pilots. The Ninety-Nines is an international organization of women pilots formed in 1929. There were 99 charter members and Amelia Earhart was the first elected president. In 1986 the museum opened in Centerville, Ohio. IWASM was welcomed by the City of Cleveland, Ohio in 1998, where you will find our home at Burke Lakefront Airport. Our exhibits are in the lobby at Burke, as well as the west concourse, and are accessible seven days a week.

Since we are located in a public building, museum admission is free!
