Air Force Museum


Magento 2 Migration & More

Located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio, the Air Force Museum is the oldest and largest military aviation museum in the world, with more than 360 aircraft and missiles on display. The museum collects and presents the Air Force’s history and traditions through engaging exhibits, special programs and more.

The Challenge

The Air Force Museum’s website was operating on a version of Magento 1. With Magento ending ongoing support for M1 sites in 2020, the Museum site management team wanted to upgrade to Magento 2. However, the Air Force Museum’s previous developer lacked the necessary experience in supporting Magento and was unable to undertake the steps necessary to successfully  migrate the site to Magento 2. The project included the following scope requirements and features: site design (UX/UI) migration, data migration, the installation and troubleshooting of M2 versions of extensions in use on the M1 site and point-of-sale/shopping cart integration migration.

Our Solution

InteractOne successfully upgraded the Air Force Museum to the latest version of Magento 2, specifically developing and implementing design, data and extension migrations. In doing so, InteractOne helped work through various issues with the data migration related to the point-of-sale integration. InteractOne also provided training to Air Force Museum team members about how to manage and add/edit/delete products on the new Magento 2 site.

The Results

This project was well executed and delivered on time and on budget. According to John Flynn, Air Force Museum eCommerce Specialist and primary project stakeholder: “InteractOne has been nothing short of absolutely exceptional to work with on this project.”

With the migration to the Magento 2 platform, the Air Force Museum’s new eCommerce website loads quickly and provides a great user experience for site visitors. The new website is an ideal representation of the great legacy of the Air Force Museum, and InteractOne is proud to work with such a noble, long-standing organization.
