Exploring Flight & Design

Celebrate the world of aviation 

  • Fly like the Wright brothers and lie on a horizontal simulator, soaring over a recreation of the dunes and shorelines of Kitty Hawk, N.C.
  • Test your flight skills in the flight simulator.
  • Aim a real airplane propeller on a wall of shimmering metal discs to create 40-foot tall wind patterns.
  • Step into a real Cessna Skycatcher.

Included with general museum admission, free for members.
