Quonset Air Museum

The Quonset Air Museum (QAM) mission is to educate the public in Rhode Island aviation legacy through activities, hands-on displays and school classroom presentations, both in the school and at the museum.

Educational, interactive displays are throughout the museum, some related directly to the many aircraft on display.

Below are just a few from our collection

Curtis – Wright XF15C-1 Stringaree
LTV A-7D Corsair II
Grumman A-6E Intruder

The A-6 worked around the clock in Vietnam, conducting attacks on the targets with a pinpoint accuracy unavailable through any other aircraft at that time. The A-6E proved once again that it is the best all-weather precision bomber in the world in the joint strike on Libyan terrorist-related targets in 1986.

Aircraft restoration is a current on-going activity at the QAM where we have highly talented, skillful people, acting as mentors willing to give anyone interested in learning a basic understanding of what restoration is all about.

Lim-6bis(MiG-17F Fresco C
Sikorsky SH-3H Sea King

Creative, interesting displays at the museum provide a wealth of information addressing all topics of aviation providing visitors with a clear understanding of the history and science of aviation.

Current activities include visits and presentations for elementary, middle school and high school classes where presentations, by QAM mentors, augment history, math, science, and geography classes taught by the classroom teachers.

QAM is housed on 3 acres in an original Naval Air Station Quonset Point hangar built in 1945.
