The “Take Flight! the science of aviation” exhibit immerses kids in the four forces of flight.  Featuring state-of-the-art flight simulators built into kid-sized planes, a 2-story slide, Amazing Airways, Bernoulli’s Wind tables, a real Cessna 150 and lots more, Take Flight entices the entire family into an unforgettable aviation learning experience.

PLEASE NOTE: Portions of this exhibit will be closed through Spring 2023 as we make exciting updates and renovations to this space.
