[1 - Be Inspired]

It’s so much more than airplanes and rockets: It’s about the young girl who dreams of becoming an astronaut and discovering new worlds; the war hero sharing stories of the B-17 with his grandkids; the little boy mesmerized by the speed of the Blackbird; the teenage engineer who just built his first robot. It’s about discovery and inspiration, about daring to dream bigger than ever before. It’s The Museum of Flight.

It only takes one spark of inspiration to ignite a child’s ambition to learn and explore.

The Museum of Flight provides as many “spark” opportunities as possible to encourage the next generation of engineers, pilots and astronauts to dream big. Inspiration Begins Here! puts our visitors at the center of everything. Every new program that we add, every event we host, every renovation and improvement – it’s all to give our community the best Museum experience that we can provide.
