Flying With the Kids is... Fun

Imaginations take flight at the Aviation Education Center at the International Women's Air & Space Museum. "We offer very unique aviation activities, and it's all hands-on," says Toni Mullee, the museum's executive director. Tops among them is a simulator that allows junior pilots to experience the operation of the Wright brothers' glider. "It's very difficult, but it gives kids an idea of what the Wright brothers had to do when they were making this thing called an airplane." Children can also explore interactive lockers that help them understand what it's like to be a pilot, flight attendant, or mechanic; and an aviation "touch wall" allows them to touch actual airplane parts. Today, young visitors also can take part in a $1 craft session at 11 a.m. or 1 p.m. The museum is in the terminal building at Burke Lakefront Airport and operates from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily; admission is free. The Aviation Education Center is open today from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 216-623-1111 or visit — Rebecca McKinsey

Along with fine coffees, it offers a large selection of bakery and food options, including chocolate and croissants.
