Visit the Aerospace Gallery and see the history that pushed the limits of aerospace technology. With exhibits like the moon rock and the capsule from the Apollo 13 movie, the kids that want (or wanted) to be astronauts when they grow up have lots to explore. Other highlights include:
The Arizona Aviation Hall of Fame — located in the Dorothy Finley Aerospace Gallery, the Hall of Fame offers museum visitors a unique opportunity to acquaint themselves with noteworthy Arizona aviators.
X-Planes — Models illustrate the history of the experimental aircraft used by the U.S. Air Force, NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, the precursor to NASA), and NASA to extend human knowledge of the principles of flight from the X-1 that broke the sound barrier to the X-45 hypersonic test plane.
The Space Race — This extensive exhibit uses artifacts, models, photographs and text to examine the Cold War’s highest battlefield, the race to the Moon.
Drone Technology — Collection of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles including the General Atomics MQ-1B Predator, MMIST CQ-10A SnowGoose, Radioplane OQ-3, and one of only two “optionally-piloted” Sikorsky UH-60MU Black Hawks… to name a few.
