*We need a volunteer to run our Membership program! With our new facility we hope to see new members coming forward and new member rewards… but we need someone to develop and manage the program! If you’re interested, please contact us at 360.424.5151*
The Heritage Flight Museum proudly launched their Membership program at the annual Warbird Weekend in August 2006. Still in its infancy, we look forward to developing it over the coming years. At this time, Members at all levels receive: a membership card and bumper sticker, free admission to the museum & reduced pricing at some special events.
Annual Memberships are available at the following levels:
- Family (2 adults & children under 16yo)
- Student (copy of ID required)
- Military (active or retired, copy of ID required)
Memberships can be purchased at the Museum directly, or online using the tool above.
Volunteering at the Heritage Flight Museum will give you the opportunity to interact with some of the rarest vintage aircraft still flying. Volunteers are an essential part of our efforts; not only do they represent the Museum to our visitors, but they keep things running smoothly!
