Check out the Poplar Grove Vintage Wings & Wheels Museum
Gerstad Builders is a friend of the Poplar Grove Vintage Wings & Wheels Museum, which is located less than a half mile from The Trails of Dawson Creek new home community. The Poplar Grove Vintage Wings & Wheels Museum is dedicated to Pre-WWII transportation history. Located on the Poplar Grove Airport, the museum is on 12 acres and has several early 20th century airplane hangars and automotive garages that have been saved from destruction and relocated to the museum campus where they have been renovated for future generations to enjoy. The museum includes permanent exhibitions on the history of transportation, special exhibits, a research library, gift shop and more. Their mission focuses not only preserving history, but also educating people, and the museum offers a variety of outreach programs to area grade schools, field trips, summer camps, lectures, and a scholarship program, as well as special events throughout the year.
Starting May 1, the Poplar Grove Vintage Wings & Wheels Museum will open for its summer hours: Monday to Friday 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the first Saturday of each month (May through October) from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and the first Sunday of each month (May through October) from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
General admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors over age 62, $3 for children ages 8 and up, and free for children 7 and under. A family admission of one or more adults with children is $12. Bring the family out to learn about the history of transportation, or even take your out of town guests! What a treasure to have such a fantastic resource right in Poplar Grove, and so close for residents of The Trails of Dawson Creek!Â Â
