To celebrate the opening of the Barron Hilton Pioneers of Flight Gallery, the Museum is hosting a Family Day. Activities will focus on the 1920s and 1930s, formative decades in aviation when flight technology rapidly advanced; military and civilian aviation grew tremendously; record-setting and air racing captured public interest; African Americans began to breach the social barriers of flight; and modern rocketry was born.
