"Flying might not be all plain sailing, but the fun of it is worth the price"
Just a little over 119 years ago, two brothers took to the air for a short flight at Kitty Hawk, NC. Here we sit now with aviation and aerospace continuing to evolve with flight across our galaxy. All because people dared to dream.
Our goal at KAM in 2023 is to continue to dream and then act on those to continue the growth we have seen over the past year. Our Matty Project is coming along and should be opening by the end of March. You will also continue to see additional small improvements across the museum throughout the year with updates to existing exhibits as well as new spaces opening up. We are going to continue to see our partnerships within our community and region expand, grow and strengthen.
In 2022, we saw an increase in membership of 22% for the year. Venue Rentals increased 200% and attendance increased by 40% from pre-pandemic 2019 numbers. This is in large part because of the support we have received from you. From the bottom of our hearts here at KAM, THANK YOU! Let's make 2023 great.
