History and fun with National Aviation Museum-Opoly

Board game lovers will enjoy the new National Naval Aviation Museum – Opoly game. The game can be purchased exclusively from the Museum’s Flight Deck Store. National Naval Aviation Museum – Opoly is full of aircraft, exhibits, history and a trip through the largest Naval Aviation museum in the country.

The concept and rules of the National Naval Aviation Museum – Opoly are the same as the traditional Hasbro Monopoly game. Instead of properties like Boardwalk and Park Place, this version uses Museum exhibits like the Blue Angels Atrium and Battle of Midway and Homefront U.S.A. Other places featured in the new game: Pensacola Beach, Perdido Key, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. The custom game pieces are inspired by elements of naval aviation including a model F-18, captain’s hat, life preserver and helicopter.

“We were thrilled about the idea and started designing the board in November 2018,” said Donald Watson, Museum Foundation digital media specialist. “Months of planning went into the development including concept inspiration, testing and graphic design.”

The naval aviation-centric board game was created in partnership with the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation and a company called “Late for the Sky,” which has made specific city- and college-based Monopoly games since 1984. Proceeds of the game will benefit the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation.
