Creating Community

Opportunities await

We can’t contain our excitement!

The Air Zoo remains a cultural mainstay in our community and an attraction for worldwide visitors throughout the year. We continue to offer opportunities for learning and inspiring visitors through interactions with history, science and technology.

If you’ve been to the Air Zoo recently, you know we are a-buzz with activity. As the school year winds down, class fieldtrips fill our buildings with energy. Exciting new exhibits engage visitors of all ages from near and far. The significance of our impact cannot be overstated.

But we don’t do this work alone. From its inception, community partners and generous donors have made our impact possible. Today is no different. We invite you be part of the Air Zoo’s impact by donating today!

What does a gift to the Air Zoo mean? It means…

  • Exciting new additions to our exhibits. The Air Zoo’s Annual Fund is used to preserve our collection of aviation artifacts, create and display engaging exhibits within our 200,000 square feet of public spaces, and care for our state-of-the-art facilities.
  • Improved accessibility. Our new Community Access Program provides children and families with direct financial assistance. Thanks to this new effort, visitors with financial need can access the Air Zoo at little to no cost. 
  • Amazing new educational programs. Our Education Team continues to expand the Air Zoo’s offerings, including classes, day camps and special events. Our Educators are responsive to our many educational audiences, and keep hands-on learning at the heart of every experience.
  • History restored. The Restoration Team of staff and volunteers are deeply committed to the intensive work of recovering, restoring, and iconizing historical aircraft. They are dedicated to their work and expanding the impact it has on our visitors.
  • We hope you share in our excitement! If so, please consider a generous donation today. And visit soon to witness our impact in-person!

Your mid-year support will benefit these upcoming programs, activities, and events.
