The United States Air Force Academy does not have a museum; however, we receive gifts on an almost daily basis. These gifts range from cadet uniforms to graduate memorabilia, paintings and art objects, and bronze replicas of WWII aircraft. In addition, static display aircraft have been placed around the Academy.
Driving in the South Gate, you will see a T-38 Talon and the A-10A Thunderbolt II "Chopper Popper" at the Thunderbird Airmanship Overlook.
Driving in the North Gate, you will see "Diamond Lil", a B-52D Stratofortress.
There are four aircraft in the cadet area that can be viewed from the Academy Chapel: a McDonnell-Douglas F-15 Eagle, a General Dynamics F-16A Fighting Falcon, a Republic F-105D Thunderchief, and a McDonnell-Douglas F-4D Phantom II.
The Academy Cemetery hosts five memorial walls with numerous plaques dedicated to past units.
The Cadet Honor Court located north of the Academy Chapel holds statues in memory of the Tuskegee Airmen, WASP Pilots, WWI Overseas Flyers, Lt Gen Hubert R. Harmon, and bronze scale models of the P-51 Mustang, P-40 Warhawk, P-47 Thunderbolt, P-38 Lightening, B-17 Flying Fortress, B-24 Liberator, B-29 Superfortress and the C-46 Commando.
Arnold Hall hosts exhibits of artifacts related to General of the Air Force Hap Arnold, Women in the Air Force, Prisoners of War, Tuskegee Airmen, and much more.
The Doolittle Raiders Cups have been relocated to the National Museum of the Air Force in Dayton, Ohio.
