Great museum - my grandson is 6 and really enjoyed it Loved the hands on planes and helicopters and also the fire engine display

What an awesome museum. Had so much fun and the staff was very helpful and informative. The movie of the Lewis and Clark expedition was a learning experience, and the lunch at Red Planet was satisfying. This is the only groupon I have purchased so far that did not expire. Although it was beyond the date, and I lost the discount, I was able to apply the original purchase price to my entry tickets. Great way to spend a day.

Wonderful museum for all people of all ages. Children's playroom is great for active young children with plenty of age appropriate things to do.

About Cradle of Aviation Museum


Flanked by seven other aircraft, a Grumman F-11 hangs suspended in a shallow dive over the main entrance to Cradle of Aviation Museum’s four-story glass atrium. Three viewing levels on wraparound balconies afford views of the aircraft that only fellow pilots in close formation ever saw when it was in service. The 150,000-square foot facility’s eight exhibits grant similarly intimate glimpses of more than 75 aircraft and spacecrafts that trace the historic path of Long Island’s aviation contributions since 1870. Those artifacts include a replica of the Wright Brothers’ 1899 kite, five aircraft made in Long Island for World War II, and the Grumman Lunar Module LM-5 “Eagle,” which transported Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin to that soundstage that looked like the moon.

Patrons also get a chance to soar skyward in the X-Ride Theater, a 30-seat motion simulator whose “Fly with the Blue Angels” film mimics the piloting of a U.S. Navy squadron jet. Over in the JetBlue Sky Theater Planetarium and the National Geographic Dome Theater, the immersive screens bring to life subjects such as National Geographic's Mysteries of the Unseen World. After riding the Historic Nunley's Carousel, which was built in 1912, guests can reenergize over a meal in the Red Planet Cafe, whose space station décor evokes a Martian cafeteria in the year 2040.
