Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome

A living antique aviation museum in the historic town of Red Hook, New York. 

The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome is a true “living” museum of antique aviation located in the historic town of Red Hook, New York (not to be confused with the Brooklyn neighborhood of the same name.) The Aerodrome presents one of the largest collections of early aeroplanes in the world, plus automobiles, motorcycles, early engines, and memorabilia spanning the years from 1900–1939.

During exciting weekend air shows, the Aerodrome turns back the hands of time and relives the early years of aviation flying original and replica airplanes from the Pioneer Era, World War I, and the Golden Age of Aviation including the second oldest flying airplane in the world (Bleriot IX) and a newly completed authentic replica of the Spirit of St. Louis.
