Upcoming Programs

Gather your little ones for story time with the National Air and Space Museum. In this story, the Sun visits their star friends that can be found in our neighborhood of the Milky Way. We find out the Sun’s friends are all different colors and sizes, but they are all stars. After the story, museum educator Ann Caspari will make shadow puppets that you can play with in the sunlight.

The What's New in Aerospace? series, presented in collaboration with NASA, is open to the public and will cover recent research, developments, and discoveries related to space.

Soar Together @ Air and Space is a monthly family-focused program from the National Air and Space Museum. By engaging in these activities and experiences, families can imagine their own futures by sharing in the stories of innovators and explorers from diverse backgrounds who challenged conventions and changed the world. Each month we will focus on a different theme. 

Join the National Air and Space Museum for Sally's Night to celebrate the wonder of our universe from wherever you are. Sign up to get the FREE Sally's Night Celebration Guide, full of activities for the whole family. The guide will be sent by email on June 18.

Join educators from the National Air and Space Museum as we explore our dynamic solar system.

Staff will be there to answer your questions about our cosmic neighborhood and beyond. This program is designed for families with kids ages 8-12, but all are welcome to participate!
