The Future is Now - Air, Space and Science at the Cradle of Aviation Museum

Air, Space, and Science at the Cradle of Aviation Museum

Artemis and SpaceX? Flying cars? Electric airplanes? Space tourism? Artificial intelligence?


Museums are time machines that not only preserve and give us a view of the past but provide a window and blueprint for the future.

Come get inspired by all things air and space and the science behind it at the Cradle of Aviation Museum.

Over the coming months and years, we will feature air and space exhibits, education programs, events, and planetarium shows, all designed to educate, inform, inspire and continue the legacy of Long Island's aerospace heritage of discovery.

Join us on this journey by becoming a member, signing up for emails, sharing our content with friends and family on your favorite social channels, and participating online and in-person as we chart the course through these rapidly changing times.

We appreciate our community and thank you for your continued support.
