The International Women's Air & Space Museum is located in the terminal of Burke Lakefront Airport. Since we are located in a public building, admission to the museum is free. Even if you have visited IWASM in the past, we welcome you to visit us again as exhibits change often and there are always opportunities to see something new.
The museum office, gift shop and Fay Gillis Wells Research Center are open Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Exhibits are open for self-guided tours seven days a week, from 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.
We are closed on all major holidays, with the exception of Labor Day, as well as home football games of the Cleveland Browns.
In these unprecedented times, the museum understands and is determined to ensure the health and safety of all those who work, volunteer, and intern with us. It is for this reason that we adopted our IWASM COVID-19 Policy & Procedure which outlines our safety strategies to mitigate any COVID-19 exposure.
