The mission of the Cradle of Aviation Museum is twofold: to engage all ages in the exploration of our aerospace heritage by preserving and displaying Long Island’s contribution to air and space travel; and to inspire, motivate, and stimulate our youth to be the next generation of aerospace scientists and engineers. We achieve our mission through our growing exhibit collection and our ever expanding educational programs.

Education Calendar

We strive to make the Cradle of Aviation Museum the best resource for the community that it can be. In that light, we are happy to host a growing list of competitions for young people from across Long Island to participate in and exciting educational events for the entire family.
