About the Museum

B-36 Peacemaker Museum evolved from a dedicated group of individuals who restored the last B-36 "City of Fort Worth". After restoration, the group began efforts to raise funds and support to display the mighty bomber inside a facility as required by the National Museum of the United States Air Force.
