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, in addition to air shows and biplane rides. It's living history and family fun!

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.

Plan Your Visit to This "Living" Aviation Museum

During your trip to the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome, you can see one of the largest collections of early aeroplanes in the world. In addition, you can check out automobiles, motorcycles, early engines, and memorabilia spanning the period from 1900-1939 as well.

Our collection includes an original 1909 Bleriot XI (the oldest flying airplane in the Americas), a WWI SPAD VII and Fokker Triplane performing dogfights, and the world’s most accurate reproduction of Charles Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis.

On select weekends, you can witness spectacular airshows at the museum and see historic aeroplanes in flight. On weekdays, there is no scheduled flying, but you may see test flights and mechanics doing maintenance.

Want to ride in the sky? Biplane rides are offered before and after the airshows, and by reservation on weekdays. You can also look forward to other special events throughout the museum's season.
