Museum of Aerospace Medicine

Museum of Aerospace Medicine

The Edward H. White II Museum of Aerospace Medicine is a museum of the United States Air Force and is located at Brooks City-Base, San Antonio, Texas.[1]

The Bexar County Historical Survey Committee assumed sponsorship of the restoration of an old Hangar 9 of the old Army Air Corps Brooks Field. The restoration of the Hangar would be used to house an aviation museum. It became the Edward H. White II Museum of Aerospace Medicine.[1]


Historic registration

The Museum was accepted and listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and became a National Historic Landmark in 1976. The State of Texas has designated this old Hangar 9 as a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark, and a City of San Antonio Historic Landmark.[1]


Brooks Field Hangar 9 was restored in 1969 to become the U.S. Air Force Museum of Aerospace Medicine. This museum is intended to display the early history of Brooks Field and to preserve and display an extensive collection of photographs and equipment related to aviation and aerospace medicine.[2]
