Visit the Amelia Earhart Legacy Association in Londonderry

The Amelia Earhart Legacy Association (AELA) was started up by a group of local woman who are passionate about the Amelia Earhart story. AELA has been formed to keep the story of Amelia Earhart alive. To promote the global success story of the first female to fly solo across the Atlantic landing in Derry/Londonderry on 21st May 1932.

How much is admission?

You’re in luck! Nothing at all! Admission to the museum is completely free of charge, however any donation is very much appreciated.

A pioneering aviator and inspirational figure, Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean and set many other records throughout her career. Her disappearance in 1937 during an attempt to circumnavigate the globe devastated admirers across the United States and around the world. Her public career lasted less than a decade (from 1928 to 1937), but she used her fame to promote two causes dear to her: the advancement of commercial aviation and the advancement of women.
