Visit the National Soaring Museum! Here you can explore the history of soaring where soaring in America began, with one of the largest collections of historical and vintage gliders and sailplanes in the world.

Located atop Harris Hill in Elmira, NY, the soaring museum is open year ‘round. In addition to the museum, there is a large playground, amusement park, swimming pool and picnic area on the Harris Hill campus, including the Harris Hill Soaring Corporation Flight Center, where visitors can purchase a 20-minute sailplane flight over the Chemung Valley. Flights are available during the spring, summer and fall, weather permitting.

The museum itself houses not only a significant collection of sailplanes, but also presents a vast array of soaring trophies, memorabilia and photography. A trip through the National Soaring Museum presents the history of soaring in America and celebrates Elmira’s role in soaring history.
