Captivate the Family with a Visit to the Air Zoo

The Air Zoo has been a local treasure in Kalamazoo fostering a love of planes, spacecraft, and all things that fly. In addition to be being a world class, Smithsonian-affiliated aerospace and science museum, the Air Zoo is a fun place for families.

Whether your kids are toddlers, teens or anything in between, the Air Zoo provides activities for all ages to enjoy. For the youngest visitors, there is a children’s room with giant blocks to build and mini spaceships to ride.

Older kids can embark on their own flights with indoor, amusement park rides or full-motion flight simulators.

The fun does not stop there; be sure to stop by the hands-on learning stations and special exhibits that update regularly.

And, we have your chance to WIN a family 4-pack of tickets to visit the Air Zoo!

  • Memories and Milestones: Wish the Air Zoo a happy 40th birthday, as you browse vintage artifacts of this museum since its inception.
  • D-Day 75: See D-Day era planes in person, including the P-47 Thunderbolt, C-47 Skytrain, and WACO CG-4A.
  • Apollo 11: Relive the moment when “the Eagle has landed” fifty years ago. Tour a 1960s era living room or dress up as an astronaut.
