The museum houses over an acre of the finest collections of aviation and space flight exhibits in the central United States. Its mission is to promote the adventurous spirit of flight and space travel, while encouraging primarily science and mathematics educational excellence!
The museum maintains strong working relationships with the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, NASA, and the National Air & Space Museum.
