National WASP WWII Museum

About the Museum and Its Collections

Located at Avenger Field in Sweetwater, Texas, the National WASP WWII Museum brings the history of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) to life and connects later generations to the World War II era. Archives contained within its collections represent the role of the flight school in training women pilots to fly military planes and show how WASPs responded socially and professionally to new challenges brought by war. The collection’s items include financial documents, photographs, scrapbooks, personal and professional correspondence, pilots' logs, and flight manuals related to WASP experiences during and after training at Avenger Field.
