The Aviation Hall Of Fame & Museum of New Jersey was founded in 1972 and preserves New Jersey's aviation and space heritage. The museum displays historic aircraft, space equipment, artifacts, photographs, art and an aircraft model collection. The library has more than 4,000 volumes and a collection of aviation video. It is located at Teterboro Airport, the oldest operating airport in the Tri-State Region, at 400 Fred Wehran Drive, Teterboro, New Jersey.


The museum was founded in 1972 by Pat Reilly and Donald G. Borg. Initially located in a radio tower at Teterboro Airport, it moved to a nearby building in 1985, and again in 1997 to a much larger facility.
