Viewfinder: Selfridge Air Museum Preview

Selfridge Military Air Museum and Air Park is scheduled to open Saturday, April 2.

Don't let this weekend fly by without attending the Selfridge Military Air Museum and Air Park season opening in Harrison Township.

For airplane, military and history enthusiasts who can't wait until then, check out Patch's preview of some exhibits, courtesy of the museum.

Visiting the museum

The public is welcome from noon to 4:30 p.m. on weekends from April 2-Oct. 30, as well as on Fourth of July and Memorial Day. Due to traffic, the museum will be closed during the 2011 Selfridge Air Show Aug. 20-21. The museum is also open throughout the year by appointment, such as those made for group tours.

The admission fee is $4 per guest ages 13 and up, $3 for children between 4 and 12 and a minimum donation of $25 for all appointment tours.

Visitors must drive to the  military base's main gate at M-59 and Jefferson for a pass to enter the restricted area.

Hi Sara, The pictures supplied by the museum are actually really clear. We'll try to reload them to see if there are better results that way.

Yes, those pics are great! Normally, I'd need glasses to see them clearly but this time I'm not wearing my glasses and I can see details very clearly. The Selfridge Military Air Museum is a gem and should not be overlooked. I'm also looking forward to this year's airshow. Thanks!
