Full Deck of Women Aviators


From a past edition of OhioTraveler.com

The International Women’s Air & Space Museum  in Cleveland, Ohio is working to create a deck of playing cards that will feature 56 unique photos and educational facts about women in aerospace fields on the face of each card.

All 56 of the card faces may be sponsored by anyone who is interested. Individuals may want to put, “In Memory of,” or even “In Honor of,” on a card. The sponsorships vary in price from $85 to $250.

These limited edition playing cards will highlight the aerospace community as well as raise funds and bring awareness for the museum. The deck of cards will be sold in the gift shop and at various local events for $10 each.

To be a sponsor, call 216-623-1111 to reserve your card.

The museum offers free admission. Exhibit hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.,
seven days a week. Office, gift shop and research center hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The International Women’s Air & Space Museum is located in the terminal of Burke Lakefront Airport, only seconds from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and the Great Lakes Science Center.

The mission of IWASM is to preserve the history of women in aviation and space and to document their continuing contributions today and in the future. In 1986 the museum opened in Centerville, Ohio. IWASM was welcomed to the City of Cleveland, Ohio in 1998, where you will find their home at Burke Lakefront

Airport. Exhibits are in the lobby at Burke, as well as the west concourse, and are accessible seven days a week. For additional information please visit www.iwasm.org.
