Frontiers of Flight Museum presents Museum Day Live and Girls in Aviation Day
The Frontiers of Flight Museum, in association with the Smithsonian Institution, will open its doors free of charge with special passes along with over 1,400 other participating venues for Museum Day Live. This immensely successful program, in which the Frontiers of Flight Museum will emulate the free admission policy of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, D.C.-based facilities, encourages learning and the spread of knowledge nationwide.
The museum will feature over 30 aircraft and space vehicles will be on display, including one-of-a-kind artifacts such as the Command Module from the Apollo VII space mission. Comprehensive and engaging exhibits complement a wide range of structured educational programs and informal activities that validate the Museum’s reputation as a significant community educational resource.
Also on Sept. 23, the Frontiers of Flight Museum will again join Women in Aviation to celebrate Girls in Aviation Day for girls ages 8-16. WAI will present a variety of interactive experiences for visitors, including cutout helicopters, the phonetic alphabet, an aviation scavenger hunt, “build and fly” foam gliders, and a photo station where you can dress like an aviator and post your picture. During the event, guests are invited to visit the Museum’s Hamilton Family Auditorium at 10:30 a.m. and noon as WAI presents two aviation career panel discussions featuring speakers with a wide range of experience in the aviation industry.
