The mission of Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum is to educate and inspire people of all ages about aviation and space endeavors of the past, present and future.
Wings Over the Rockies is a Colorado-based non-profit organization dedicated to educating and inspiring all people about aviation and space endeavors of the past, present and future. By utilizing the Air & Space Museum in Denver's historic Lowry neighborhood to preserve the past and the Exploration of Flight Center at Centennial Airport to focus on the present and future, Wings strives to encourage the future aerospace leaders of tomorrow.
Located in Denver's historic Lowry neighborhood, the Air & Space Museum annually welcomes more than 160,000 visitors from all 50 U.S. states and from more than 30 countries around the world. Designed to inspire and educate people of all ages about aviation and space endeavors of the past, present and future, our museum is proud to be Colorado's Official Air & Space Museum.
Located on the grounds of Centennial Airport in Englewood, Colorado, Wings Over the Rockies' second location will house future-focused aviation and space centers designed to educate, entertain and provide visitors with unique experiences and exhibits. While visitors to Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum will experience a rich heritage center, Exploration of Flight will focus on the future of aerospace exploration and technology.
Thank you again for all the fun Will and Henry had at Flight Camp this week. They had so many wonderful experiences. I shared some of them with you this morning. I also wanted to be sure to share with you that they were in awe of the camp counselor who is attending CU for rocket engineering. It was really impactful for them to spend so much time with people who share their passion and I am so grateful that Wings provides this opportunity!

My experiences at Air & Space Camp were both knowledgeable and awesome. At camp we had a knowledgeable lesson about the four forces of flight, then afterwards we did an awesome experiment demonstrating the four forces. One thing that I liked about camp was the freedom of creativity. The universe is the limit in all things you do at Air & Space Camp, and I'm sure you'll have a blast at camp. I surely did!

This kit and the instruction you guys give us is amazing and especially appreciated during this time of budget cuts and lack of resources for us to do an effective job. Thank you so much.

I have used the WASP kit as curriculum in the classroom as well as a summer school class and it is wonderful. It's organized, easy to teach, all inclusive, and thorough.

I was so thrilled with my experience of flying in the beautiful yellow 1942 Stearman Biplane. It was a thrill to experience something I had only read about and dreamed of. I can't wait to get back to school and share my experience with the students and the staff at my school. This was a once in a lifetime experience (although I'd love to do it again)! I teach 4th and 5th grade gifted and talented students. I know that my experience (and our traveling classroom pet Chester the Flying Cheetah) will excite, thrill, and pique their interests in aviation and aviation related careers. Bringing the students to The Wings Over the Rockies Museum will only further their excitement. The majority of my students do not have the opportunities to experience hands-on and positive life altering activities. I know this program, the lessons, and activities that will be brought into the classroom will create in many a desire to spread their wings and fly! Thank you for an Awesome Experience!
