Museum staff will read stories for children about famous aviators, hot-air balloon flights, trips to Mars, the night sky, and winged creatures that soar through the skies. Afterwards, visitors ages two through eight-years-old will take part in a hands-on activity.

Story time will take place at 11:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. behind Discovery in the James S. McDonnell Space Hangar.

In the event of inclement weather, story time will be cancelled if Fairfax County Public Schools and/or Fairfax County Government are closed.  

These programs are made possible through the generous support of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation
