International Women's Air & Space Museum

International Women's Air & Space Museum The International Women's Air & Space Museum, Inc. (IWASM) is a museum dedicated to the preservation of the history of women in aviation and space and the documentation of their continuing contributions today and in the future.The museum began as a committee of the Ninety-Nines in order to collect historical artifacts and memorabilia of women pilots.

In 1986, the International Women's Air & Space Museum opened in Centerville, Ohio in the former home of one of the Wright brothers' uncles. Bernice Steadman, an aviator and member of the Mercury 13, was one of the museum's co-founders.IWASM resided at its original Centerville location until 1998, when the museum relocated to Burke Lakefront Airport in Cleveland, where IWASM is located today, after it outgrew the Centerville home and needed to find a new location. The International Women's Air & Space Museum's exhibits are in the lobby at Burke, as well as the west concourse, and are accessible seven days a week. Since the International Women's Air & Space Museum is located throughout the terminal of Burke Lakefront Airport, a public building, admission to this museum is free.
