We hosted over 280,000 visitors to the facility in 2014, including 72,000 international visitors from all corners of the globe.
exhibits - exhibits are provided in the facility gallery that highlight the significance of commercial aviation and the innovations created by aerospace engineering. As we are developing a new master plan to design our future exhibit needs for the gallery, little change of significance occured in 2014.
education - the foundation has developed and implemented educational programs. These programs involve middle school children in an immersive learning programs with both classroom instruction and on-site (future of flight) sessions. These programs emphasizes science, technology, engineering and math (stem). This year we also implemented a family zone area with hands on interactive learning exhibits.
