The Cradle of Aviation Museum is located on land once part of Mitchel Air Force Base which, together with nearby Roosevelt Field and other airfields on the Hempstead Plains, was the site of many historic flights. In fact, so many seminal flights occurred in the area, that by the mid-1920s the cluster of airfields was already dubbed the “Cradle of Aviation”, the origin of the museum’s name. The museum is home to over 75 planes and spacecraft representing over 100 years of aviation history and Long Island’s only Giant Screen Dome Theater. From first flights by frail biplanes on the Hempstead Plains to man walking on the moon, the museum is proof that dreams can come true. Visitors are inspired by the pioneers of air and space highlighted at the museum.
