As far as museums go, nothing quite compares to an Air Zoo experience. They have everything from the evolution of flight, to space travel, to weather systems, and even exhibits on the latest technology. Instead of keeping your hands in your pockets in a "please don't touch" environment, the Air Zoo invites you to interact and learn along the way. But that's not all. They're not only a museum, they're part amusement park with rides and simulators for all ages. The Air Zoo is truly a gem in our community and they are celebrating their 40th birthday. What do you get a museum for their 40th? A bow tie...?

Air Zoo's birthday celebration is November 15 through 18th, and they have specials and fun going all weekend long.

  • November 15th - Receive a free Copilot Pass with any membership so you can bring a friend along for all the fun!
