      The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force is the only center dedicated to preserving the history and stories of the Eighth Air Force from World War II to the present.  The Eighth Air Force, established in Savannah on January 28, 1942, soon became known as the “greatest air armada of all time”, and its story can be heard today at the 90,000 square foot facility in Pooler, Georgia. More than 100,000 visitors, 15,000 students and others visit the museum each year - viewing more than 11,000 artifacts from around the world.  Our mission is to preserve the stories of courage, character, and patriotism displayed by the men and women of the Eighth Air Force from World War II to the present.  The Museum treasures and teaches strong values for future generations through ongoing projects, programs and exhibits, such as The Character Counts!® education program, the B-17 restoration, and maintenance of the exhibits that honor our World War II heroes. The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force is a 501(c)(3) organization that receives no federal or state funding.  All proceeds from the “Flying Fortress 5K:  United We Run” ensures that the legacy of “The Greatest Generation” lives on for future generations.
