Frontier of Flight Museum
While most air-and-space museums house aircraft retired after extensive service, the centerpiece of the collection at the Frontiers of Flight Museum has a flight record that’s hard to match: 163 consecutive orbits around Earth. Between October 11 and 22, 1968, the Apollo 7 command module rocketed around the globe at 17,280 miles per hour, chalking up a healthy number of orbits before splashing into the Atlantic and, eventually, coming to its current residence on the museum floor. Displayed with its hatch open for visitors to peep inside at its instrument-covered panels, the module sits alongside thousands of artifacts from the various golden ages of aeronautic exploration, including salvage from the infamous Hindenburg airship and more than 30 vintage aircraft. The family-friendly museum welcomes younger visitors with the Children’s Discovery Area and a "living history" series featuring aviation icons such as Amelia Earhart and Orville Wright.
