KidVenture Gallery

Enjoy a totally interactive flight experience for young people, unlike any other in Wisconsin or the Midwest!

The KidVenture Gallery includes hands-on fun in every exhibit, including simulators, more than half-dozen separate aircraft cockpits and many more exhibits. The 3,000-square foot gallery is designed as a fun-filled way to increase young people’s knowledge and enthusiasm in the thrilling world of flight.

Inside the gallery, young people will be able to take the “Chopper Challenge” and see if they have the skill to keep a helicopter airborne. They can make rocket fuel and discover how chemistry and physics play a key role in flight. Visitors can also find themselves in a hang glider sling or a hot-air balloon basket and “feel” themselves flying over the countryside in front of wide-screen simulators. There are also aviation discovery activities suitable for younger children in the gallery.

The KidVenture Gallery, supported by the Emil Buehler Trust, will be included with regular museum admission. The concept grew from the extremely popular KidVenture area hosted for young people each summer during the EAA AirVenture fly-in. Each year, thousands of kids enjoy aviation activities in that area during the world’s largest general aviation event. The new KidVenture Gallery features many of those activities plus many more, linked some way to aviation and featuring learning through discovery.
