PORTAGE, Mich. (WOTV) Get a hands-on lesson in history and science with a visit to the Air Zoo. The museum features more than 60 rare and unique aircraft, including airplanes, rockets, satellites, and more. Kids can get up close and personal with many of the items, climbing into them for a pretend ride. Or they can strap on their seat belt for a ride in a 4D flight simulator.
The Air Zoo encourages kids to learn about science by becoming immersed in it. They can feel what it’s like to be scientists, engineers, and pilots.
The public archive area is where visitors can see thousands of items that have been donated or given to the Air Zoo, many of them from other museums. You can see old books, medals, real astronaut and military uniforms, weapons, and other relics.
