A new museum at Syracuse's Hancock International Airport is educating travelers about local history.

The Regional Aviation History Museum is located underneath the grand staircase between terminals A and B. From historical uniforms, classic cars, and interactive features, it tells the story of the evolution of transportation in Syracuse.

The Onondaga Historical Association is behind the museum. Executive Director Gregg Tripoli (trip-o-lee) says it serves as a great welcome site for visitors and locals of Central New York.

"Thought it was a great way to help brand our region and our airport,” said Tripoli. “So that when people land or arrive here they know where they are or when they're here getting ready to take off, it gives them something to do."

The museum is free and it stays open with the Airport.
