  • American Airpower Museum
    The American Airpower Museum couldn't have a more appropriate setting. More than six decades ago, its grounds were home to Republic Aviation. Here, a formidable assembly line?nicknamed "the Jug"?churned out more than 9,000 P-47 Thunderbolts, which helped fortify the Air Force during World War II. Today, the American Airpower Museum displays Thunderbolts in honor of the brave pilots that flew them during those crucial years. And just like the dinosaur skeletons in a natural-history museum, these exhibits come to life?during warm months, Thunderbolts often taxi out onto the runway and take off to the delight of the crowd. The skies around American Airpower Museum showcase other prop- and jet-powered aircrafts dating from WWII to the present day. Ground-level exhibits, meanwhile, show off more aircraft and military vehicles, including tanks. The resident pilots even offer ride-alongs in an AT-6 or Waco aircraft. Visitors can also test the controls of a Cessna 310 for themselves inside a custom-built simulator.

  • Vanderbilt Museum
    William K. Vanderbilt II enjoyed traveling around the world, but never so much that he got distracted from his true passion: the sea. He collected marine specimens on his journeys?along with other artifacts?to one day display at his Long Island estate. His collection's first 1922 iteration was aptly called Hall of Fishes. But in the almost-century since then, it's expanded into a museum complex that's home not only to marine life, but to other artifacts of modern history. Size: 43 acres of waterfront land; 30,000+ artifacts. Permanent Mainstay: the historic, Spanish Revival-style mansion, whose 24 rooms feature intricate ironwork and antique furnishings. On tours, visitors also take in what elite family life was like in the first half of the 20th century. Eye Catcher: The rolling lawns. The mansion is surrounded by acres of manicured flowers and greenery that looks especially lush in summer. Hidden gem: Animal species Vanderbilt discovered himself. Keep an eye out for them in the museum. Don't Miss: the Planetarium, a modern addition. On its 60-foot dome, visitors can watch recreations of landmark celestial events, such as Orion trying on belts at the space-mall.

  • 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.

  • Long Island Children's Museum
    An entire city can be built within Long Island Children's Museum. All it takes is a little imagination, and a basic understanding of architectural principles like balance and proportion. Luckily, the "Best of Long Island"-winning museum's Bricks & Sticks and Building Boom with KEVA exhibits teach those very concepts. Museum educators and interactive software provide inspiration as kids (and adults) design and shape skyscrapers, castles, bridges, and more out of blocks. Those building activities are just two of the 14 hands-on exhibits that take families across the museum's grounds. The TotSpot area lets the youngest visitors slide and play on age-appropriate equipment, while other galleries let kids explore outdoor gardens, step inside giant bubbles, and film mock-newscasts, complete with hard-hitting expos?s on just who is the real John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt. Even the onsite theater has an interactive element. Here, actors and musicians often invite kids on stage to join in on the performance.
