This much-anticipated special exhibit is now open in the museum’s 4th building. This exhibit invites everyone to join the epic journey into the sky and beyond, celebrating the power of innovation to make dreams take flight. Museum visitors will be able to design-and test-fly-their own supersonic jet; pilot a drone into the eye of a hurricane to measure nature's fury; spread their wings and experience flight as a bird or a futuristic wing-flapping aircraft; or take an elevator ride to the edge of space.
"Above and Beyond" is open daily from 9-5 and is FREE for visitors.
