West Chester’s American Helicopter Museum and Education Center (AHMEC) was recently voted Main Line Today magazine’s “2022 Readers’ Choice Best Museum for Families” in its annual poll. Listed under “Main Line’s Best Sports and Entertainment in 2022,” AHMEC vied for the title against several amazing and unique institutions.
“This is truly an honor for us,” said Paul Kahan, AHMEC’s Executive Director, “especially considering the many fine organizations we were up against. It’s a credit to our dedicated staff and volunteers, as well as our diverse array of family-friendly programs, such as drone workshops and our Girls in Science and Technology program.”
Main Line Today surveys its readers each year to discern what they consider “Best of the Main Line and Western Suburbs” in eight categories. The publication tallies the results and announces the winners in its July edition.
“We want to thank the readers for their votes,” continued Kahan. “Their enjoyment of the museum’s collections and exhibits is so gratifying. With their continued support, we plan to bring even more family-friendly programs to the community.”
AHMEC’s upcoming schedule includes World Helicopter Day on August 14, a drone workshop on August 27, the opening of the “Star Trek Screen-Used Props and Costumes” exhibit on September 8, Haunted Helicopters on October 29, and SantaFest on December 10.
