Family Drop-In Programs

Discovery Backpack Program

Enhance your museum family experience by embarking on self-guided escapades with a custom Discovery Backpack activity kit. Designed for kids ages 4 – 10, each Discovery Backpack comes with a multitude of activities, scavenger hunts, and adventure-learning initiatives that blends history with fun as they explore over 30 of the museum’s towering displays of historical aircraft.

For only $5.00, each backpack is rentable, sanitized, and customizable to your child’s experience and/or school curriculum needs.  Children will also be able to create their very own artwork and paper airplanes – mementos to take home with them to continue the adventure.
