The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome in Red Hook, NY is a flying aviation museum featuring one of the largest collections of early aeroplanes in the world. Note that we are following NYS guidelines and will be open when it is safe. Stay safe, see you then.
Discover the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome
Established back in 1958, the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome is a 501c3 non-profit museum that is dedicated to preserving, restoring, and flying aircraft of the Pioneer, World War I, and Golden Ages of Aviation. What makes this attraction special is that we present and fly antique aeroplanes in their natural setting and recapture the thrill and excitement of old-time flying from the period of 1900-1939.
