The museum

The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization with a modern extensive museum facility located in Pooler, Georgia, in the western suburbs of Savannah. It is at exit 102 of I-95. It educates visitors through the use of exhibits, artifacts, archival materials, and stories, most of which are dedicated to the history of the Eighth Air Force of the United States Army Air Corps that served in the European Theatre during World War II.

Among the many World War II exhibits are aircraft including a B-17 Flying Fortress bomber that can be viewed while being restored, a model of a Messerschmitt Bf 109G fighter, and a 3/4-scale model of a P-51 Mustang fighter. Aircraft on display outside include the B-47 Stratojet, MiG-17, and F-4 Phantom II from the post-WW II Cold War era.

A 2003 statute named the center as State of Georgia center for character education.[1]
