For all those kids who LOVE planes, and rockets, and love learning about the history of them all, this might just be the place for them!
Niagara Aerospace Museum has been collecting and preserving artifacts and pieces that have been integral parts of aerospace history.
Some of the amazing pieces that kids can walk round and look at, include a Bell P-39 Airacobra which actually saw combat in Russia (That’s pretty far away!) and the first US commercially licensed helicopter! How amazing is that!
Love films? Yes – it’s all related when you have the Bell Rocket Bel which was made famous in the James Bond movie “Thunderball” (Kids – ask your parents!)
There are test engines which were used to blast those brave astronauts off to the surface of the moon, and there is the actual control panel that was used by a mission controller during those famous Apollo moon missions!
There are SO many things for kids to see here! They can imagine they are astronauts themselves, or brave fighter pilots as they admire the premier WWI trainer aircraft for the entire country.
Historic photos also help kids place these collections out in the action.
All of the collections at the Niagara Aerospace Museum give kids a really insight into the rich history, as well as the incredible technological advances that have been made over the years.
It’s a fascinating day out for all of those kids and families who have an interest in these very cool historical artifacts that have had such an influence in our aerospace history.
