Military Museum Expansion

For Estrella WarBirds Museum

In 2011, the Hind Foundation granted $243,563 to the Estrella WarBirds Museum to build a new facility to connect the existing Freedom Hall to the Brooks Building. The Freedom Hall currently holds authentic memorabilia items from all military branches and recent conflicts while The Brooks Building houses restored military vehicles, a collection of inert bombs and missiles, a minor restoration garage, and a storage area for military uniforms. The museum will dedicate the new facility to the Hind Foundation by naming it the Hind Pavilion, which will showcase the many exhibits that the museum currently cannot display due to lack of space – from jeeps and fighter jets to antique ambulances and modern missiles, and other countless equipment and memories. Additionally, the gift shop will be moved to this new Hind Pavilion.

Noteworthy Outcomes
•    Paying Tribute
The Hind Pavilion will pay tribute to current and past servicemen and women. By recognizing a part of their history, we’re recognizing our country’s history.

•    Educating Visitors
The Museum provides visitors with an in-depth look into our Country’s relatively current history of wartime life and sacrifice.
