Today’s airfield museum has existed since 2006. The permanent exhibition covers the period from 1913 to the present. Around 60 picture boards and a variety of aircraft and flight models, aircraft parts and aviation paraphernalia give you a comprehensive and partly very private insight into the diversity of Strausberg aviation and the respective spirit of the times.
The collection started to be built after Strausberg airfield stopped being used for military purposes. An old barrack was used as the first location.
The founders of the museum are Horst Kleest and Helmut Bukowski. Rolf Hartmann was responsible for the conceptual design of the museum.

The Förderverein Flugplatzmuseum Strausberg e. V. aims to continue researching the history of aviation at Strausberg from its beginnings up to the present day and to place it in its historical context. The results of this work benefit the Strausberg airfield museum and are made accessible to the public through regular events.
The members of the association take expert care of the museum visitors, maintain and archive the existing museum collection and are constantly expanding it.
Did you like our airfield museum? Our friends’ association would be delighted to receive your donation as there’s still a lot to do. The archive is full of hidden treasures to be discovered and showcased. And the largest outdoor project — the red biplane — needs a lot of loving care to be preserved in the long term. In addition to the collection of concrete documents and exhibits, a media archive is to be set up in the future with audio and video recordings of historic personalities and former as well as current pilots. This will help to bring the airfield museum even more alive.
