We've always needed to communicate. Sending letters, postcards, or even email over the internet
have all been ways to share messages with each other. Let’s test out what it would be like to send a message from a distant planet!
Suitable for Any Age

New Digital Exhibits!
Spirit of Flight & Spirit of Flight Junior
New Digital Photography Exhibits Now Open!
Spirit of Flight is a juried exhibition that asks photographers to submit images they feel embody “the spirit of flight.” Spirit of Flight Junior is an all-new exhibition featuring photographers ages 5-17.
This year’s exhibition images will reflect upon the “Spirit of Flying Home.” Inspired by the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, and the boundless emotions felt the world over by returning service members and families after the extended global conflict.
The Museum experience is also a virtual reality! Walk through Air Force One, Concorde and the B-17 in 3D. A dozen rare aircraft are online now, with more on the way.
