As you explore Grissom Air Museum, don't miss out on insightful exhibits and hands-on displays. 

At Grissom Air Museum, many guests enjoy climbing to the top of the Observation Tower. Some of the headliners at Grissom include the 434th Air Refueling Wing, the 319th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, and the A-10A Thunderbolt II, which was used by the military from 1976 to 1984.

Mississinewa 1812

Experiene truly unique and inviting area attraction on your next visit to northern Indiana.
