Portage, Michigan

The Air Zoo is a highly charged, multi-sensory aerospace and science experience that goes beyond anything you've ever seen! With over 100 historic and rare aircraft & spacecraft, indoor amusement park-style rides, interactive hands-on exhibits, flight simulators, and movie theater there is truly something for everyone! With two unique centers, engaging docents and tons of multi-sensory exhibits, guests can enjoy an entire day exploring. The region also benefits from the Air Zoo’s hands-on and immersive science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) education programs. From fieldtrips to outreaches, homeschooling to scouting and seasonal day camps, the Air Zoo is an area leader in PreK-12th grade STEAM learning. The Air Zoo also boasts a world-renowned restoration center, housed within the Flight Discovery Center. Restoration volunteers are on-site to give guests an up-close and personal look at two incredible WWII aircraft being restored right on the exhibit floor! Fly in aircraft and bi-plane rides are also an exciting activity guests may find at the FDC!  Among the aircraft on loan from the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum are El Kabong I and the Curtiss XP-55 Ascender.
