Explore over 150,000 square feet featuring 75 air and spacecraft, from a hot air balloon to an actual Lunar Module. Learn about Long Island’s role in aviation history, and why the museum is called the Cradle of Aviation. The museum’s eight exhibit galleries are in chronological order and throughout the museum volunteer docents are there to share their aerospace experience. There are over 30 hands-on exhibits, a half-dozen cockpits to climb into and many short films throughout the exhibits.
