The sole mission of the Pan Am Museum Foundation is to develop a Pan Am Museum furthering the legacy of Pan American World Airways and their importance in aviation history.
The Foundation seeks to reunite all former employees and affiliates of Pan American World Airways and those interested in aviation, as well as to serve future generations by promoting an appreciation of all aspects of the aviation industry. Students, teachers, researchers and the community-at-large will find enrichment through the Museum’s educational programs.
The Pan Am Museum will preserve and exhibit Pan Am artifacts commemorating the company's history, contributions to aviation, and the extraordinary people of Pan Am.
The museum will conduct special events and educational programs to further illuminate the impact Pan Am had on aviation, international travel, and the assistance it gave to the U.S. government and global concerns. The Foundation welcomes collaboration with all Pan Am organizations.
