From smoke filled balloons to the space age, the Tulsa Air and Space Museum chronicles Oklahoma contributions made to the aviation industry.
Designed for kids of all ages you’ll travel from the Golden Age of flight, when Tulsa’s airport was the busiest in the world, to the birth of the Israeli Air Force during WWII; and from the stories of Pearl Harbor survivors, to the Mission Control exhibit where a space shuttle is launched, it’s all at the Tulsa Air and Space Museum.  Part fun and part educational the Museum also has a rotating exhibition area to ensure a fresh experience each time you visit.
Adjacent to the Tulsa Air and Space Museum, you’ll discover the wonders of the universe in the Planetarium, where the visitor is immersed in a theater atmosphere and treated to high-definition and state-of-the-art visuals.  The presentations range from astronomy and constellations to earth science and art history.
Relatively new to the Tulsa Air and Space Museum complex is an American Airlines MD-80.  Titled the MD-80 Discovery Center, a tour of the jet includes facts about flight, a peek into the cockpit and a viewing of “The Pursuit of Flight”.
Let’s just say, a visit to the Tulsa Air and Space Museum is an “uplifting experience”.
