Mississippi Aviation Heritage Museum opening in Gulfport
After a long awaited process, the Mississippi Aviation Heritage Museum will have a soft opening this Saturday.
The museum will have a ribbon cutting around 10 a.m. and be open to the public for the first time.
Volunteers and staff of the museum will be working for the rest of the week to ensure that they are ready for Saturday.
The museum is said to be only in phase one as they plan to add an observation deck and also a restaurant.
The museum will be limited to only about 100 guests. Masks and social distancing will be required. Project Manager Francisco Gonzalez said, “The most important thing I can tell you about this place is that it is one of those projects that was not built with money. It was built with love, people, human beings who walk through that door and say what can I do today? We didn’t have money to throw at it, I was very cautious with the money we have, cause getting a building this size is very, very expensive.”
The museum will also be open and welcoming guests for Cruisin’ the Coast.
