The Oakland Aviation Museum in Oakland, Calif., has received a 2014 California Preservation Assessment Project (CPAP) grant from the California Preservation Program (CPP).
The CPAP program is designed to help small and mid-sized libraries and archives plan improvements in the care for their permanent and historical collections.
The CPAP audit/assessment of OAM’s collections, including scope and scale of preservation, is an essential first step to create a plan for enhanced collection care, according to museum officials.
Oakland Aviation Museum, located at old North Field at Oakland Airport, has been educating the public since 1981. The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday, 10 am-4 pm. The museum is housed in the 1939 Boeing School of Aeronautics building at 8252 Earhart Road.
