It’s a train, it’s a plane, it’s a car! It’s the Museum’s Transportation Gallery...


Explore all the most fascinating aspects of how humankind has flown, soared, chugged and sped throughout the years. Climb aboard the engine of the Empire State Express 999, the first machine to break the 100 mph barrier; walk through a real United 727, hanging from the Museum’s balcony; take in the Spirit of America, the car that drove more than 530 miles per hour in 1965; or simply gaze in awe of the historic aircraft that fly above you …

Flight Simulators: Ride or Fly!
Take flight in simulators that let you experience and even control the experience of flying aircraft from throughout history.
