Summer Fun Days

Register the aspiring aviator in your life for one of our half-day Summer Fun programs!

Summer Fun Days children’s programming starts July 2, 2024, and runs every Tuesday morning from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm through August 20.

Each program is 2.5 hours long and includes a museum tour, an educational component and hands-on STEM activity, nut-free snack, and supervised playtime outdoors in Aviation Plaza.

We’re offering three programs, each geared towards a specific age group.
Please review each program before registering.
