MISSION: RIVER RATS MUSEUM

  

 

 

 

The National River Rat Executive Board is thrilled to announce the the next mission for ALL River Rats. We have teamed up with Aviation Heritage Park, located in Bowling Green, Kentucky, to create the future "Home of the River Rats."

 

VISIT THE AVIATION HERITAGE PARK WEBSITE TO LEARN MORE 

 

The River Rat Museum would be part of a larger aviation museum being built by Aviation Heritage Park. This 11,000 sq. ft. indoor museum will allow the River Rats to collect, preserve, and exhibit artifacts, documents, patches, flight suits, and other items better suited for a controlled environment. Interactive exhibits will captivate visitors with exciting in-depth insight and understanding of the what and who the River Rats are.
