Pueblo Weisbrod Aircraft Museum is an aviation museum dedicated to the brave men and women who served during World War II especially those that served from the Pueblo Army Air Base. It is a static aircraft museum with nearly 30 airplanes on display from early 20th century prop planes to jets. The Pueblo Aircraft Museum has a wide variety of planes on display I found it interesting getting a chance to see a B-29 Superfortress which was a WWII bomber and the ½ size replica of a 1918 French biplane from WWI.
As a history buff I always find aviation museums especially those geared towards the military as worthwhile attractions to visit. The few that we have been to which you can read about by clicking here are usually staffed by a great group of volunteers and the Pueblo Weisbrod Aircraft Museum also had great volunteers. The staff there was very kind and informative and was willing to answer any questions that we had. They had a great group working there the day of our visit and we found their stories very interesting. I know I learned a few things that I will add to my teaching lessons this upcoming school year.
Besides the aircraft that is on display the air museum also had a variety of other artifacts. Including 100s of personal military gear donated to the museum by the individuals themselves or the friends and families of those that served. My wife really took to their collection of female uniforms from WWII they had on display.
The Pueblo Weisbrod Aircraft Museum is divided up into two hangars with some aircraft on display outside of the museum. There is also a museum gift shop, a theater area, a library, and over 100 display cases. I thought the admission price was right on target and we really enjoyed our visit to the Pueblo Weisbrod Aircraft Museum during our day long stop while driving through the area.
