Like no place else on earth.

Imagine. Explore. Discover.

As we do our part to help mitigate the continual spread of COVID-19 the Air Zoo will be temporarily closed until further notice. The safety of every community member – guest, employee, and volunteer – is of the utmost importance to us.

In an effort to bring something new and immersive to you every day during our shelter in place order, we have been creating fun and educational content - tours, artifact finds, science experiments, art activities, story telling and more.  We will share new content daily!  So keep an eye on our newly developed "Launchpad to Learning" page. 

Summer Camps have gone virtual!

The Air Zoo educators have been busy revamping our out-of-this-world summer day camp programs to be immersive, educational and available online, live, for 2020. Please take a moment to check them out and see if one is right for your child and to learn more about the adaptations in place for online learning. Registration opens May 15th!

We look forward to exploring and discovering with you!
