Take Flight explores the four forces of flight and introduces children to careers in the field of aviation.
Climb into a real Cessna 150, where kids can get a close-up look at the controls and talk to air traffic control over the radio. The exhibit also features immersive flight simulators, including one with in-flight snacks and real airplane seats. Other exciting features of the exhibit include a 2-story slide, our “amazing airways” system of pressurized tubes, a miniature city where little learners can bring a helicopter or rocketship in for a landing, a paper rocket launcher, and so much more.
Be sure to also check out our rocketship, where kids can learn about a day in the life of an astronaut. Whether your child is running experiments, taking a spacewalk, or just watching items float in “zero gravity” above their heads, this part of the Take Flight exhibit will inspire children to expand their horizons and look to the stars.
