The Stafford Air and Space Museum is named in honor of legendary test pilot and astronaut, Lt. General Thomas P. Stafford. Located in his hometown of Weatherford, Oklahoma, the museum houses one of the finest aerospace and space flight collections in the central United States. The museum not only highlights Stafford’s illustrious career, but also the many daring explorers that made a profound impact in the advancement of aerospace technology and research. The museum has many artifacts on display, educating the public on our nation’s rich aviation and spaceflight history. From humble beginnings, it started with one display case in the Weatherford airport, and has grown to expand more than an acre and a half in size! As one of three only Smithsonian Affiliates in the state of Oklahoma, it is a premier facility that has continually gained local and national recognition.

Named a Smithsonian Affiliate in 2011, the museum showcases thousands of items representing the evolution of aviation and spaceflight. Examples include a ten story Titan-II rocket, the actual flown Gemini 6 spacecraft, actual space suits-including Stafford’s own Apollo 10 pressure suit, a full-scale replica of the Apollo Command and Service Module, as well as a two and half story full size replica of the Lunar Module. Our extensive aircraft collection includes full-scale, extremely accurate replicas of the Wright Flyer, Spirit of St. Louis, and Lunar Module, along with many actual aircraft including an A-10, F-16, Russian Mig-21, and F-4, F-86, T-38, and F-16. The museum also has one of the largest collections of rocket engines including an actual F-1 engine, the world’s largest rocket engine from a Saturn V, and an actual NK-33 Russian rocket engine. The Stafford Museum is the only place in the world where one can see both on display!

The museum’s outdoor display has become an iconic monument for the region. Situated just outside the museum’s front entrance, the Lockheed F-104 “Starfighter”, points majestically six stories straight up into the sky!

The museum has worked closely with the Smithsonian Institution, NASA, and the U.S. Air Force Museum to assemble one of the finest collections of aerospace artifacts in the central United States.

“You can tell the world we have arrived.”   -Apollo 10 commander Thomas P. Stafford
