The Stafford Air & Space Museum became a Smithsonian Affiliate in June 2011. Since then, the museum has developed a special partnership with the Smithsonian Institution which enables the Stafford Museum to offer two memberships in one! With the purchase of any MACH level membership, patrons will receive a membership to the Stafford Air & Space Museum AND the Smithsonian Institution. This two-in-one membership allows members to not only be a part of the Stafford Museum, but to join with one of the largest museum and research complexes in the world! Benefits range from magazine subscriptions, Smithsonian store discounts, travel opportunities, and more!
The Stafford Air & Space Museum is one of ONLY 3 Smithsonian Affiliates in Oklahoma. This packaged membership is exclusive to Smithsonian Affiliate museums and its members.
Your membership not only directly supports the Stafford Air & Space Museum, but also entitles you to benefits not offered to the general public. You can select the membership level to see what comes with each level and choose what's best for you and join today. Remember your contributions may be tax deductible.
Your contributions will help conserve and maintain exhibits and educational programming. All donations go a long way in helping us achieve our mission to spur on curiosity and the importance of why humans must explore. You can send donations directly to the museum or donate online.
We have launched the most exciting fundraising campaign in the museum’s history to kick off the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Stafford Air & Space Museum to expand the current facility. The Stafford Museum stands not only as a tribute to General Stafford and the many pioneers of aerospace, but also as an institution that has the ability to leave a lasting impact on individuals through the stories and the history of the evolution of aviation and spaceflight.
The museum’s aerospace artifact collection has grown to one of national importance in recent years. The building expansion will allow the needed space for numerous priceless artifacts to be displayed. Examples include NASA’s Fixed-Base Space Shuttle simulator that was used for the primary training of all 135 astronaut crews who flew the Shuttle and a set of actual pieces of the “Wright Flyer,” the world’s first successful flight of a controlled-powered aircraft, that were carried to the moon and back by astronaut Neil Armstrong.
The museum’s mission is to preserve not only Tom Stafford’s legacy, and the legacy of those who participate in this campaign, but to educate and inspire future generations to dare themselves to be great. We invite you to join us in this endeavor and leave your legacy.

"World Class Museum"
"This was my second trip to Stafford Air & Space Museum. The collection of NASA items and exhibits is really amazing. You would expect some things from Gen. Stafford's missions, but there was so much more. If you live in Oklahoma or traveling through via I-40, you should plan a stop. They are in the process of expanding the museum, but no real impact on the current exhibits."
