Haunted Hangar
Where fright takes flight!
Thursday, Oct. 30 and
Friday, Oct. 31, 2008
The spirit of Halloween takes flight at the EAA AirVenture Museum’s Haunted Hangar! Enter at your own risk to a dimly lit museum. Spooky guides lead you on an exciting flashlight tour though a Haunted Hangar. But … watch out for Halloween ghosts and surprises as you listen to chilling stories about ghastly aviation history (…and the airplanes look pretty neat under flashlights too!)

Admission to the Haunted Hangar is just $5 per person and all visitors are encouraged to dress in their favorite Halloween costume. Plus, EAA members and children five and under are admitted free! Reservations are not required, but recommended by calling 920-426-6880 or by visiting our secure registration site here.


Space Week
Will your “eggstronaut” survive?

December 1-5, 2008

This week is especially designed to introduce students in grades 3-8 to the science and wonder of space exploration. Exciting and educational activities take place each day from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. including Fizzing Rockets and Stomp Rockets. Students will also design and build a vehicle to protect an “eggstronaut” from the perils of reentry. The ultimate test will be to see whose “eggstronaut” survives the giant drop! This activity will also include an up-close view of EAA’s multimedia space exhibit, which includes a full-size reproduction of SpaceShipOne. For more information, prices, and to make reservations for your class - call 920-426-6880 or e-mail museum@eaa.org
