Selfridge Air Museum in Harrison Township

Selfridge Air Museum is on the Air National Guard Base, so be prepared to show your ID and registration for your car when you enter the security gates. All of this is worth the visit in Harrison Township on Lake St Clair. This museum receives no state or federal funding and relies totally on donations, admissions and volunteers to run. There are over 25 aircraft on display and some of the docents are retired crew which really added to the excitement of the presentation. You can walk around in a couple of the planes and in the museum building there are also cockpits and displays to enjoy from early aviation to Desert Storm. Did you know Charles Lindbergh completed his training at Selfridge?
