ARMSTRONG AIR & SPACE MUSEUM EVENTS

Sat, 04/01/2017 - 10:00am - Sun, 04/02/2017 - 4:00pm
The weekend of April 1st and 2nd marks our first ever, Rocket Weekend!!
 
We are very excited to welcome area specialists in the industry, Wright Stuff Rocketeers! The Rocketeers will be launching some very unique rockets.
There's a different form of propulsion around every corner; from water, to air, to vinegar and baking soda.
Come explore the world of rocketry with us!
Our education team will be providing a Rocket Building Workshop. Children will get the opportunity to learn how to build their own model rocket, while discussing rocketry and propulsion influences on its flight.

*Rocket launching is weather permitting.

 


Sat, 04/08/2017 - 9:30am - 10:45am

Registration begins at 9:30. Parking will be available at the Museum, Bob Evans, and Holiday Inn Express. This event is co-hosted with First United Methodist Church of Wapakoneta.
The Easter Bunny will be on hand to meet children and take photos.
This year's event will feature four hunting zones for children 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, and 7-10. Special observation areas will provide parents and other adults with clear views of the hunt areas, which will be partially or fully enclosed. 
All hunts will feature staggered starts and will be preceded by a special rocket launch!

We wanted to show our appreciation for your continued support by providing a day that is tailored to the needs of home school families.

Sat, 07/22/2017 - 8:00am - Sun, 07/23/2017 - 8:30pm

Buzz Aldrin will visit the Armstrong Air & Space Museum during the 2017 Summer Moon Festival on July 22.


Sat, 08/26/2017 - 9:30am - Sun, 08/27/2017 - 5:00pm

Saturday, visit the museum and build your own space station with kids from across the world. The Earth's national and regional space agencies built the International Space Station one module at a time. You will employ that same method as we launch our own modules throughout the day. Each module will be made of cardboard and participants can use their imagination to determine what purpose each unit will serve. Weather permitting.

 

Sunday, use shoe boxes or similarly sized containers to build a smaller scale space station inside the Museum. Decorate each module to indicate if it is intended for living quarters, scientific research, or station operations. Admission required for smaller-scale space station.

Also, the larger-scale space station assembled on Saturday will be available to take on its first astronaut crews. Weather permitting.

 

Both days, we'll examine how living in space is possible, with demonstrations of growing food, water filtration, and zero-G fitness.


Thu, 11/23/2017 (All day)

The Museum will be closed all day today.


Mon, 12/25/2017 (All day)
