Did you know the Tulsa Municipal Airport was the busiest airport in the world in 1930? Experience 100 years of Tulsa's rich aerospace history while viewing rare vintage airplanes and enjoying exciting interactive exhibits at the Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium. Tulsa has been a strong center of aerospace manufacturing and research for decades and the museum displays aircraft such as the Spartan C-2 which was built in Tulsa during the 1930s, the Rockwell Ranger 2000 and other locally-built planes.  You'll also find easily recognizable modern airplanes such as an F-14A Tomcat fighter jet.  Climb into the cockpit and let your imagination soar as a 'Top Gun' pilot.

The real strength of the Tulsa Air and Space Museum are the interactive exhibits that keep the whole family fascinated for hours.  You'll find simulators that put you in the pilot's seat of a fighter jet, let you fly a scale model through a wind tunnel, use controls to maneuver robotic arms like astronauts in space and much more.  There are also plenty of video exhibits that let you navigate through stories of pioneers that never gave up their dreams to fly and test your knowledge of flight. One of the highlights at the Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium is an MD-80 on display.  This American Airlines McDonnell Douglas MD-80 airliner has been refurbished for the enjoyment of museum guests.  In addition to being used for special events, the airliner is open to the public.  The plane has been stripped of most of its seating and carry-on bins have been removed to leave more head space.  The aircraft gives a unique glimpse into commercial flights in Oklahoma and beyond.

The Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium also boasts a state-of-the-art planetarium that is just the second of its kind in the world. Experience a spectacular show that takes you on a journey through the universe in a 50-foot diameter dome. The presentation allows the audience to travel through a vast real-time simulation of the universe with its multitude of stars, planets, asteroids and galaxies. In a split second, you will move from a pastoral Oklahoma sunset to a "sense of presence" in galaxies 70 million light years away. Immerse yourself in a 3-D full dome video planetarium show and discover constellations and planets visible in the local night skies. Shows are about 45 minutes in length and begin on the hour. Schedules change monthly.
