Notes for Travelers
The WACO Historical Society, founded in 1978, maintains the museum and flying field while operating under the mission of preservation, education, and community service. Historic WACO Flying Field officially opened in 1997 as a 77-acre parcel of land with a 2200-foot runway. The first structure erected on the site was a historic barn built in 1856 and reconstructed on the museum’s grounds. Today, the museum complex includes several hangars housing vintage aircraft and interpretive displays. Guided tours are available by appointment, and the WACO website offers a virtual tour for on-line exploration of the museum. Visitors interested in immersing themselves in the world of WACO aircraft can book a 30-minute or 12-minute flight experience.
