Browse through exhibit areas and learn about the important role women pilots played in the development of aviation.  The 99s Museum of Women Pilots also features archives with a repository of personal papers, personal items and historic artifacts that chronicle the rich history of women aviators from Amelia Earhart to today's women of space.  A research library is also available to the public.

Perhaps one of the most popular exhibits at the museum, an extensive collection of Amelia Earhart belongings are housed here.  This collection includes a pair of leather goggles, her "lucky" bracelet that she incidentally left behind on her last flight, one of her famous scarves and much more.  Visitors to the 99s Museum of Women Pilots will also enjoy a display on the first Powder Puff Derby, which featured women pilots flying cross-country.  This collection includes detailed routes, photos of the planes, equipment and a large display of trophies.

Visitors can also browse through sections dedicated to women aviators' contribution to U.S. and international militaries.  Learn about the U.S. Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs), the Russian Night Witches, the Civil Air Patrol, the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA), women combat pilots, and the first woman graduate of MIT.  As an added bonus, uniforms from the British and U.S. WASPs are also on display within the museum.
