The Port Townsend Aero Museum youth mentorship program has been central to our operation from the beginning. We have worked with young adults from all across the Puget Sound region, from Port Townsend to Bainbridge Island, Lacey to Port Angeles. Our volunteers come from an amazing variety of backgrounds and families.Put Port Townsend Aero Museum and other Port Townsend attractions into our Port Townsend trip builder tool, and watch your holiday take shape.
The main requirement for participation in the program is strong commitment and desire to learn. Regardless of age, all volunteers at the museum are treated equally. We expect responsibility and consideration while we teach for skill.
Our young adult volunteers learn technical skills, management techniques, aviation history, and other related subjects. For those who show capability, dedication, and interest, we also have a flight training program. As any of our volunteers will attest, this is not a "free flight training" program, as a considerable investment of time, energy, and character comes before flight lessons.
Most importantly, the desire to participate must come from the individual, not his or her parents or advisors. In our experience, the program is fascinating and thrilling for those with strong interest. It is difficult and frustrating for those told to attend by others.

This is a great spot for anyone interested in aviation, local history, and a cool place to take the kids. My family visited and found a clean, well laid out museum filling out an aircraft hangar. The place is basically run by volunteers and folks involved in various restoration projects. Besides the gift shop with tons of goodies for kids of all ages, there are books, models, and many wonderful examples of vintage aircraft. The rates for tickets are correct on the website...it's that inexpensive!!!! Come out, see a great museum and visit a great airport and check out the Spruce Goose cafe! Yummy food right by the flight line! We'll be visiting again!
This is a nice little hole-in-the wall museum featuring small yet historically significant aircraft that are still airworthy and occasionally flown to this day. There is also some awesome artwork and pictures depicting other aircraft of various makes through history. This is a quick look, roughly an hour to see it all in detail, and is fun for all ages.
