science of flight with simulations and design activities
Sloan Museum is bringing flight and space exploration to life with a new exhibit that launches visitors into the future of aerospace technology and air travel.
Above and Beyond, an interactive experience exploring innovations in aerospace, will debut Saturday, May 15 at Sloan Museum, located inside Courtland Center Mall in Burton. The exhibit is presented nationally by Boeing and sponsored locally by the Nartel Family Foundation.
The 5,000-square-foot exhibit will offer an unprecedented interactive demonstration of advances in aviation and aerospace, from the first powered flights to the newest innovations on Earth and in space. As visitors enter Above and Beyond, they will be welcomed with an immersive, wraparound theater that highlights the epic quest to challenge the limits of flight.
The exhibit opens May 15 and will run through Sept. 5. The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday from 12-2 p.m. and 3-5 p.m., as well as Saturdays from 9-11 a.m. The museum is closed for cleaning between entry times. Sloan Museum is continuing to limit capacity to ensure social distancing, based on CDC guidance. Masks are required to protect public health.
Traveling exhibit admission is $9 for adults, $8 for seniors, and $7 for kids 2-11. Genesee County residents receive discounted admission at $3 per person. Advance ticket reservation is strongly recommended, as entry times frequently sell out. Tickets are available online at SloanMuseum.org, or over the phone at (810) 237-3450.
