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: This exhibit will be closed the week of August 29th. Portions of this exhibit will be closed in Summer/Fall 2022 as we make exciting updates and renovations to this space.


This exhibit makes science, technology, engineering, and mathematics more fun than you can imagine!
