The Historic Aircraft Restoration Museum, located at Creve Coeur Airport, is a museum dedicated to restoring and preserving historical aircraft. The airplanes in the collection are all fabric-covered, and most are biplanes from the ”Golden age of flight.” The museum’s volunteers maintain most of these aircraft in full working order and this is one of the largest collections of flying classic aircraft in America.The oldest airplane on display is a Standard J-1 that was built in 1917 and was used in the movie The Rocketeer.Several of the preserved aircraft are the only surviving airworthy examples of their type.
The museum opens regularly to the public for tours on Saturday & Sunday from 10am-4pm and conducted tours can be arranged by appointment. Aircraft rides are available at the museum by request, in either a Stearman WWII biplane trainer or in a North American SNJ-5.
