From smoke-filled balloons to the space age, the Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium exhibits Oklahoma's contributions to aviation.
Designed for kids of all ages, visitors will travel from the Golden Age of flight and airplanes, when Tulsa’s airport was the busiest in the world, to the Mission Control exhibit where a space shuttle is launched into the galaxy. Explore aircrafts and learn how they work at the Museum.
Planes, space, flight, rockets: It’s all at the Tulsa Air and Space Museum. Part fun and part educational, the Museum also has a rotating exhibit area to give visitors a fresh experience each visit.
Across from the Air and Space Museum is the Planetarium, where you’ll discover the wonders of the universe. Visitors are immersed in a theater with high-definition and state-of-the-art visuals. The presentations range from astronomy and constellations to earth science and art history.
The Tulsa Air and Space Museum even includes an American Airlines MD-80 jet, titled the MD-80 Discovery Center. This center provides visitors with a tour of the jet, which 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.
