The Niagara Aerospace Museum will reopen at 11 a.m. on Saturday in a new location at the Niagara Falls International Airport in Wheatfield. It has been closed to the public for almost two years.

The museum’s collection was last displayed in the First Niagara Center after the museum lost its old lease in Niagara Falls. It will now take over an empty terminal at the airport.

Much of the museum’s collection showcases the aviation history of Western New York, highlighting companies such as Bell Aircraft, Consolidated Aircraft and Curtiss-Wright.

The museum also has a space gallery and artifacts dating back to the Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, who are credited with flying the first airplane.

The museum will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, with group tours and special events available by appointment.
