The National WASP WWII Museum located at 210 Avenger Field Road in Sweetwater, TX is a fascinating walk through a unique American experiment during WWII. In order to supply more American pilots for combat in the European theater, it was decided that women could ferry planes. The young women from all over the U.S. came to Sweetwater to train. The museum is a learning opportunity for young and old. Visiting Hangar One, built in 1929, takes you back in time to a unique story that played out on the grounds where the old hangar sits. Interesting exhibits include a map of the 120 duty stations where the Women Airforce Service Pilots were assigned to duty, an exhibit containing a Congressional Gold Medal that they were awarded in March of 2010, and a Jackie Cochran Exhibit. Also, the re-created sleeping bay, the 1938 Buick Special, the PT-19A, the comprehensive timeline, a bronze of Fifinella, and a bronze sculpted by a WASP titled "The Graduate" are on exhibition. A handprint display that contains the prints and bios of 40 WASP is a favorite of the kids. There is more to see, too and so one should allow about 45 minutes for the visit. The museum is open Wed. through Sun. from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and it is easy to find when you exit of of Interstate-20 at Exit 240 or Exit 241.
