Family Fun Drone Night

Join us on Friday, April 19 from 6:00-8:00 pm for an evening full of drones! Fly through neon-lit obstacles in our darkened atrium; bring your own, or use one of ours. Don't know how to fly? That is no problem. The Vaughn College UAV club will be here to instruct you. Our popular Hand-Sensor 'Scoot' Drones will be available in the Drone Zone. There will also be spin-art and professional drone demonstrations. Recommended for ages 8-12.

April is Poetry Month

The Cradle of Aviation Museum’s exhibit, Aviators, Poets, and Dreamers, asks the question, “Why do we fly?” and finds its answers in the poems and poetic writings of some of the world’s famous aviators. The exhibit will be on display from April 20 through April 28. Kids can learn about poetry and write a 'Cloud Poem' that can be taken home or added to our wall and become part of the exhibit. Free with museum admission. More Details here...
