We 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!We are 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 25th 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.
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.

Renowned designer and Weatherford native, Kelly Gale Amen, has partnered with the Stafford Museum to create the prestigious Stafford Commemorative Bench (silver). This functional piece of art is located in several prominent households and national museums around the world.
The Orbital Blue Bench can be dedicated to a loved one and placed in the museum, or taken home to be enjoyed.
Corporate Members make it possible for the museum to acquire unique artifacts, develop new exhibits, develop new education programs, and help provide once-in-a-lifetime experiences to the public.

For more information on how you can become a part of this incredible team of leaders, contact us and we will answer all of your questions.
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."
