Someday Soon We Will Visit the Air Zoo

My daughter’s school encouraged us to build a Someday Soon Jar to capture the activities we will enjoy once the COVID-19 quarantine is lifted. In addition to seeing family and friends, ranking high on our “someday soon” list is a visit to the Air Zoo.

With over 100 aircraft to explore, full-motion flight simulators and amusement park-style rides, it’s easy to see why this local treasure is so beloved.

The Air Zoo is a world-class, Smithsonian-affiliated aerospace and science museum. It is also a welcoming, family-friendly space that fosters imagination and learning.

And while its doors are temporarily shut, the Air Zoo is creating new ways to open connections with local families.

      Favorite is Mars, cause “…girls go to Mars, to get more candy bars.” Lol

  1. Our favorite planet after Earth is Venus! We like that name 👌. Liked the Facebook page as well. Looking forward to going to the Air Zoo later this year with my four year old son!

  2. Stacey Brusselmans

    Favorite planet would have to be Jupiter. The big red spot is pretty fascinating!

  3. Patricia Witten

    And liked the Air Zoo on FB. Can’t wait to visit again and make use of our membership!

  4. My 7 year old says the sun is his favorite (which really isn’t a planet (sorry)).

  5. Our favorite planet is Venus…we love the color of this planet! We also love the Air Zoo!

  6. My 4 year old says Venus is his favorite,because it’s the hottest planet! I’ll have to Google to see if that’s accurate.
