Air and Space Museum – Denver

The Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum is located on the former Lowry Air Force Base in Denver, Colorado.

Yesterday, I was on a field trip with second and third graders and we were led by a former Navy officer who shared some personal experiences and talked about the different aircraft above and in front of us.

The museum offers a variety of programs including “access to the cockpit” where they allow people to sit planes and helicopters not normally available to civilians.

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" features a creative and curious girl who loves science, her little brother, and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a MG novel and several picture books with STEM elements and dogs.

    1. It was really a great opportunity to see things up close and I hope to go again on my own.
      Shameless plug, but my book ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON which is coming out in February has a wonderful tie-in with the museum so Iโ€™m hoping to schedule an event there after itโ€™s released. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ“š๐ŸŒ™


  1. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I’m an Apollo moon landing enthusiast who would LOVE to visit this museum, the inner ‘hydraulic’ workings of a Navy aircraft’s split wing are a feat of engineering, and I’d guess the Bell ‘huey’ actually flew in Vietnam? Great photos ๐Ÿ™‚ .
