History Comes to Life with Rosie the Riveter Day!

Few things are cooler for kids than airplanes and tools, but when you add history AND girl-power, we have a not-to-miss event perfect for boys and girls alike. I have to admit, I sort through local events all day, and I am very excited for this amazing opportunity to bring history to life for kids.

The Museum of Flight in Armuchee is a gem for families. They have a vast collection of historic flight and military memorabilia including planes and vehicles your children can climb on and in.

The staff are knowledgeable and passionate about their collection. The environment is quiet and calm (though in a hangar, so warm in the summer and cool in the winter).

One thing that makes this flight museum unique in that they have planes that actually fly. The planes come and go to tour the area in different air shows. The collection currently includes a T-28 “Trojan” Alpha Model, a T-28 “Trojan” Bravo Model and a Beechcraft C-45. Vehicles include also a tug and a M38A-1 Jeep.

Admission to the museum is only $4, or purchase a family membership which includes an annual pass for just $30.

  1. Is there any communication with the schools about these events? This goes right with 5th grade social studies! Would have been great to let my students’ families know about this or even planned an informal “field trip.”

    • It would have had to be from the Museum of Flight, but I’m working to make parents and teachers more aware of this site. I plan to send flyers out by the end of the year.
