General information

From 1937 to 1994, Lowry Air Force Base, located in eastern Denver, served the nation and surrounding community in many distinguished ways. The air base, primarily a technical training center, graduated more than 1.1 million officers and enlisted members in skills ranging from armament to photography, which tremendously strengthened the country’s war efforts in World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Cold War.

Transferred from the United States Air Force to a group of volunteers in 1994, Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum is located in Hangar 1 of the former Lowry Air Force Base. Today, the Museum includes more than 182,000 square feet of hangar space and 50 iconic aircraft dating from 1939 to 1990.
