THE MUSEUM'S EDUCATION CENTER

Learn by doing! Kids can experience several different interactive activities just like astronauts in space. There are lots of books to read about aviation and space while cozying up in a bean bag chair.

LIVING IN SPACE

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to live in space? In our Educational Center you can experience several hands-on, interactive exhibits that highlight life in space. Put your strength to the test on an exercise bike while you watch how astronauts stay strong in space. Would you be able to sleep upright? Check out the sleeping quarters in space that are attached to a wall.

CAMP INVENTION

Camp Invention is a camp where kids learn creative problem solving by trial and error rather than by book. There are challenges presented and experiments going on all week long! Camp Invention is hosted each year at the museum. See Events page for more detail in your area.

"This was my second trip to Stafford Air & Space Museum. The collection of NASA items and exhibits is really amazing. You would expect some things from Gen. Stafford's missions, but there was so much more. If you live in Oklahoma or traveling through via I-40, you should plan a stop. They are in the process of expanding the museum, but no real impact on the current exhibits."
