Overview

The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome is a true “living” museum of antique aviation located in the historic town of Rhinebeck, New York. We present one of the largest collections of early aeroplanes in the world, as well as automobiles, motorcycles, early engines and memorabilia spanning the period from 1900-1939. During our exciting weekend air shows, the Aerodrome turns back the hands of time and relives the early years of aviation (weather permitting). This colorful era is brought back to life amidst the roar of rotary engines and is great entertainment for all ages. The Saturday shows chronicle the history of flight with pioneer, World War I and Lindbergh era aircraft taking to the skies. If the winds are calm you will even see our 1909 Bleriot (the oldest flying aircraft in the United States) take to the air. The Sunday shows feature a World War I dogfight as well as barnstorming aircraft. In addition to weekend aerial demonstrations, the Aerodrome also offers four museum buildings housing static displays of aircraft from the pioneer, World War I and Lindbergh/barnstorming eras which are open to the public seven days a week from May to October.

Great collection of over sixty antique airplanes dating to early 1900s. They also have a nice collection of early automobiles and motorcycles. Great WWI simulated dogfight and aerobatics demonstration. Parking and food are also available. Highly recommend for a great afternoon of learning and fun.

I knew my husband would love the Aerodrome, I thought it would be a good experience for my 13 year old, and I expected to be hot. First, don't let the heat keep you away. There is ample shade along the back of the viewing...More

I traveled here with my daughter who was not well-entertained but the various planes and vehicles. I enjoyed myself though everything we saw was enclosed in hangars. Certainly historically fascinating but will be tough to keep kids' interested if they are not already so.

I honestly don't know the answer but would just check with the aerodrome when making your reservations. My guess is they will be flexible
