Description

Imagine. Explore. Discover.


The Air Zoo is a highly charged, multi-sensory atmosphere that goes beyond anything you've ever seen. It's like no place else on Earth! Voted the "Best Place to Take Out-of-Towners" and "Best Place to Spend a Day with Your Family" three years in a row.

The Air Zoo is a world-class, Smithsonian-affiliated aerospace and science museum with over 100 rare and unique aircraft and spacecraft, inspiring interactive exhibits, full-motion flight simulators, indoor amusement park rides and hands-on, science-based camps and classes, including the world's only remaining SR-71B Blackbird and XP-55 Ascender. The Air Zoo also features amusement park-style rides, Full-Motion Flight Simulators, a newly remodeled Quonset hut-style theater, as well as historical exhibits, educational programs, camps and activities.

Two Exciting and Unique Centers


The Air Zoo provides two exciting and unique centers on our campus for our visitors to explore and discover aviation, engineering, science, technology, math and art. Both centers are included in general admission, are open 360+ days a year, and are easily accessible via complimentary shuttle or a 5-minute walk.

From hands-on learning exhibits like our FLEXHIBITS, KEVA Creation Stations, Imagination Playground, and flight simulators to the history of Guadalcanal, Apo11o, D-Day 75, and the heroes of Michigan aviation and space exploration, the Air Zoo is committed to bringing you intriguing exhibits, memorable experiences and the desire to come back for more! Check out some of the exciting things your Air Zoo has to offer!
