The Aviation Museum of Kentucky's Gets $4 Million State Grant

State of Kentucky Grants $4 Million to Aviation Museum

The Aviation Museum of Kentucky, a gem situated 6 miles west of Lexington, is about to spread its wings even wider.

Thanks to a generous $4 million boost from the state, the museum is gearing up for a major upgrade. Let's dive into this exciting journey and discover what's in store for this beloved institution. The Aviation Museum of Kentucky was established in 1995 at the Blue Grass Airpot (KLEX) as a haven for aviation enthusiasts.

The $4 Million Grant is a game changer for the museum upgrade project because it will cover half the cost of the new facility. The museum is seeking donations to cover the rest. The new building promises a more interactive and engaging experience.

Aviation is a key driver of the Kentucky state economy. From design engineers to baggage handlers, aviation supports over 6,000 jobs.

Every contribution brings the museum closer to its goal. Donations are tax deductible--the Aviation Museum of Kentucky is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. The future of the Aviation Museum of Kentucky shines bright. With the state's support and the community's backing, this institution is set to achieve new heights.
