Air Force Flight Test Center Museum

The original museum opened in 1994 and hosted over 65,000 visitors before moving to a new facility in July 2000. The new 12,000 sq. ft. museum houses exhibits covering such diverse subjects as the formation of the ancient lakebeds, early homesteading, the first military uses of Edwards, flight testing during WWII, breaking the sound barrier, aviation records set at Edwards, testing the X-15, and the story of Glen Edwards, for whom the base was named.
