A Museum dedicated to Military Aviation History
In 1975, the Michigan Air Guard Historical Association (MAGHA) and the Selfridge Military Air Museum were formed by a group of Air National Guard officers and enlisted personnel. Our mission is to help preserve the heritage and traditions of the Michigan Air National Guard, Selfridge Air National Guard Base, and the units that are/or were stationed there.
Since its beginning and for more than 40 years of operation, the Selfridge Military Air Museum has had only three directors. They are:
Colonel Robert A. Stone (1918-1996)
Musem Founder/Director 1975-1996
Lieutenant Colonel Horace O. “Mark” Bedsole (1924-2014) Director 1996-2000
Lieutenant Colonel Louis J. “Lou” Nigro
(1945 – ) Director 2000-Present
A great way to explore and understand military aviation history from World War One to Vietnam and beyond.

The Selfridge Military Air Museum is located on a secure military installation. For security reasons, all individuals without a U.S. Government ID card, Common Access Card (CAC), or Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS) card are required to have a mandatory security background check performed for a Visitor’s Pass before they will be allowed access to the Base and the Museum. A current and valid U.S. driver’s license, current vehicle registration, and proof of vehicular insurance must be presented to Security personnel to fulfill these mandatory requirements.
When you arrive at the Main Gate, Security personnel will advise you of where (Visitors Center or Main Gate) these processes will be performed.
Citizens of another country (both adults and children) require approximately 30 days advance notice to the Museum’s Executive Director for coordination.
Museum Parking is on right side of Doolittle Avenue across from the Museum and the Air Park.
