Featured Exhibit


Take a hands-on, immersive journey through the science of extreme weather!

Wild Weather immerses visitors of all ages in the science of severe weather.  The exhibition provides visitors an engaging and entertaining opportunity to explore the power and unpredictability of severe weather. Delve into current severe weather science, discover cutting-edge technology and investigate the stories of scientists, forecasters, and passionate enthusiasts. They will also hear the stories of people who are working to better understand these events and help mitigate the impacts of severe weather on communities, infrastructure, and lives. Visitors will leave the exhibition feeling like they have been saturated in severe weather elements.

Upon entering the exhibition, visitors are drawn into the science behind tornadoes, hurricanes, heat waves, thunderstorms, and severe winter storms through interactive exhibits, multimedia experiences, models and large-scale graphics. They experience what it's like to fly a research aircraft through a hurricane, view the destruction of tornadoes, follow turbulent cloud formations and lightning strikes, become a citizen scientist in the midst of a raging winter storm, and meet a researcher studying the force of the wind in the lab.

"We're thrilled to bring such an amazing exhibit to our community," says Troy Thrash, Air Zoo President & CEO. "The interactive experiences are incredible. In one section, guests can create and increase the strength of different types of storms through movement, and actually feel the wind, heat, and snow. Yes, it is going to be snowing inside the Air Zoo! There's a lot of fun and excitement waiting at the Air Zoo this summer." 

Wild Weather truly offers something for everyone. From the very young, to the very old, this amazing exhibit provides the opportunity to connect with each other, and with the experience itself.Wild Weather  will be at the Air Zoo from May 19th through January 25th, and is included in the price of Air Zoo general admission.
