The Sky is Not the Limit

Our dream to open the all-new, immersive and dynamic aviation exhibit, Design Build Fly at Exploration Place is getting closer to reality! The exhibit opens December 2, 2017. Museum staff have worked tirelessly with industry leaders to produce this 5,000 square foot exhibit that gives you a rarely seen look inside an aircraft plant.

Most of all, this one-of-a-kind exhibit is about our community, for our community. It's packed with dozens of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) hands-on activities that will ignite a child's interest in how an aircraft takes shape. Children will discover a future full of limitless opportunities, and it's our hope that some will become the next generation of aerospace professionals.

Now is your chance to help our community to:

  • see the boundless career opportunities in the world of aviation.
  • celebrate our aviation industry, drawing on our entrepreneurial strength to empower more dreams to take flight.
  • bolster a vibrant aviation industry - the heart and soul of our regional economy - and deliver a promising future for the next generation. 

Help inspire even the youngest visitors to pursue a career in aviation.
