Looking for something cool to do if you live in or are traveling through Utah?
Check out The Leonardo Museum's newest exhibit, Flight!
Flight isn't a traveling exhibit like you might have seen at Body Worlds, Mummies of the World, or Dead Sea Scrolls. Instead, it is a semi-permanent exhibit that will be on display for the next few years.
The museum is called The Leonardo and flight was one of Leonardo da Vinci’s biggest passions...so it is only fitting.
Part of the exhibit is a giant C-131 aircraft. The aircraft is so large that they had to take off part of the wall of the building to get it into the museum. It is a real plane the flew military dignitaries just after WWII.
Q:What is cooler than having a giant plane in the museum?
A: Actually being able to climb into the cockpit and push buttons. You can also slide out of the back of it on a giant slide!
You can also see a real-life rocket pack (just like they use in the movies), three hyper-realistic flight simulators provided by Rockwell Collins, and a few additional treats I can't tell you about because I don't want to spoil the surprise.
HOW CAN YOU SEE THIS NEW EXHIBIT???
They are asking for donations for the museum HERE.
- $5 donation will get you a $13 ticket.
