Welcome to the Edward J. Peterson Air and Space Museum, Colorado's oldest aviation museum! We preserve and portray the rich aviation and space history of Colorado Springs and Peterson Air Force Base. From our barnstormer beginnings in the Roaring Twenties, through the daring exploits of our World War II pilots and into the modern space era, our exhibits are sure to capture your attention.

Our museum started in 1982 as the NORAD Visitor Center (North American Aerospace Defense command)– a starting point for visitors who boarded buses to take them from Peterson Air Force Base to the Cheyenne Mountain Operations Center. It was contained in one small building—the original airport passenger terminal for the City of Colorado Springs. By 1996, all of Colorado Springs’ original Municipal Airport buildings were listed on the National Register of Historic Places. That same year, Colorado designated those buildings as a state historic district. Today, the Peterson Museum is located right in the center of that 8.3 acre historic district on Peterson Air Force Base. The original Passenger Terminal, City Hangar and Broadmoor Hangar all have exhibits inside and anchor our award winning airpark.

All of our heritage items are part of the United States Air Force’s Heritage collection. We proudly preserve and display these items for everyone—civilian and military.

Details are still being worked out, but it will require pre-entry, and a desireable prize. There will be official entry forms provided. Four or five old X1's will come forword, and we'll play some code on the speakers. We'll score the entries, cut a couple, and play code a little faster. This is gonna be fun.

Keynote Speaker General Charlie Bishop


The general enlisted in the Air Force in 1959 and after basic training attended Russian language training at Syracuse (N.Y.) University. He completed advanced training and then was assigned to the 6937th Communications Group, Peshawar, Pakistan, from May 1960 to September 1961.

He was commissioned through the Officer Candidate School program in March 1962 and was assigned to Zweibrucken Air Base, West Germany, where he served in various intelligence data automation positions with the 6901st Special Communications Group. In July 1965 General Bishop transferred to Headquarters U.S. Air Force Security Service, Kelly Air Force Base, Texas, as chief of the Support Branch, Automatic Data Processing Center.




Our Thurday night program includes interesting speakers, comedy, and our Raffle. Perhaps with a little coaxing, Tommy might sing "I've been everywhere".
