The Flying Heritage and Combat Armor Museum, located at Paine Field Airport in Everett, will reopen its doors Memorial Day weekend. 

The museum, which has since changed ownership, closed down three years ago due to the pandemic.   

Remaining steadfast in the preservation of its extensive wartime history collection, the team is anxious to welcome visitors once again, a release noted. 

“It’s nothing short of incredible to be opening three years after closure, at a time that we pause in remembrance of those who lost their lives in the service to our nations,” said Amber Richards, director of operations at the museum in the release.

“This collection is truly meaningful to me,” Richards added. “As an Air Force veteran, I walk these hangars with a deep understanding and appreciation of the personal sacrifice these artifacts represent. It’s an honor to share these stories with the public this Memorial Day weekend.” 

Guests can visit any Saturday or Sunday through June 14 following the May 27-28 opening. After that, the museum will be open weekly on Wednesday through Sunday.

Tickets go on sale May 1 and must be purchased in advance. Find out more here.
