A Century of Flight: The Story of Aviation in Miami is the inaugural exhibition at the Hall of Aviation. Featuring images, uniforms, model airplanes and other artifacts from the collection of HistoryMiami Museum, the exhibit chronicles Miami’s rise as a hub for commercial aviation.

Envisioned as an ongoing partnership between HistoryMiami Museum and Miami International Airport’s Fine Arts & Cultural Affairs, the Hall of Aviation is an exhibition venue dedicated to exploring themes of flight; the history of aviation with an emphasis on Miami and MIA; and various aspects of the City’s long-standing fascination with flight. Exhibitions are held biennially.
