Kayla's Review:
   The Flight Museum was the coolest thing I've gotten to do all summer! My favorite part was the old planes. They have model planes too, and real old spaceships that came back from outer space. We stayed all day and even my little sister liked it and she never likes anything fun. I'm hoping to go back before school starts again and learn about how to become an airplane pilot when I'm grown up. You should go!


Dad's Notes:
   It's not all that hard to find activities to fill up your kid's summer, but to find things that I want to do with them is not so easy, especially if one is looking for something educational as well. Avionics always interested me, and after watching a program with my son on the history of flight, I sensed some common ground. We spent the better part of a Saturday at the museum, and my son was in awe of the many well preserved aircraft and interactive displays. My wife wanted a day off and had me bring our youngest daughter, which concerned me as she is only four, but she was also very entertained and said she was glad she came.

  The staff is very friendly and informative. The wide variety of aircraft and exhibits kept us occupied for hours. In addition to the exhibits, the museum offers workshops for the kids to learn about flight and rocketry, flights in the actual planes, or even real flight lessons. I signed my son up for the Aviator's Workshop next week, four days of basic flight principles for him and four days out by the pool for the grateful wife! Very much recommended for anyone with an interest in aviation.

Jacob Tip:   Make sure to step out back and watch the planes taking off from the airport. It's really loud and a good time to talk Dad into coming back for more!
