The Chattanooga Modular Modelers, Inc. and The Museum of Flight are both non-profit corporations. The Chattanooga Modular Modelers use the hobby of model railroading to educate the public about the role the railroads have played in our nation’s history. They teach techniques for construction of portable displays. They also teach electronic principles used in modern devices, and how to display artistic expression through the mastery of the many skills necessary to complete a model railroad or diorama. The Museum of Flight uses the flight of historic aircraft to raise awareness of aviation while supporting local children’s hospitals.
