NEW!: Virtual Field Trips


Dear Educator:

As you welcome students back to learning, the Museum wants you to know we’re ready and excited to work with you! After a bustling spring designing new learning techniques for your students, we’re hopeful we can instill a spirit of discovery through new opportunities in the 2020-2021 academic year.

This year, the Museum is excited to announce programming options including:

Virtual Field Trips – choose from 10 unique, exciting STEM experiences and classes hosted by a Museum educator from the floor of our Museum to your classroom or comforts of home.

Professional Development – a series of 1.5-hour CTLE certified sessions to be offered throughout the course of the year. Interested in them all? Purchase multiple sessions for a discount!

Educator Membership – includes a resource list of websites and exclusive, engaging video content from partner institutions, a curriculum guide full of extension suggestions, a discount on your first remote field trip, a free CTLE PD workshop, and even Museum benefits to enjoy with your family and friends.

In-Person Class Visits - The Museum will also continue serving you in the traditional sense with out-of-this-world field trips and outreach into your school building. To smooth the process of planning your visit, we've developed a Field Trip Planning Guide and associated Reservation Form for your use. 

We’ve adjusted all of our programming to align with health and safety protocols as put forward by the CDC and NYS including daily team member temperature checks, mandatory face masks and/or shields, extra sanitizing stations throughout the galleries, reduced group sizes, and increased material cleaning. Trips and classes are BOCES fund-able.

To schedule a program please reach out to our Reservations Department by phone at 516-572-4066 as they would be happy to guide you through our booking process.

Thank you for your support of the Cradle of Aviation Museum!

We look forward to seeing you and your students!
