You’re invited to a free party welcoming back to Muncie’s National Model Aviation Museum the 1/40-scale test models sent along with NASA’s Shuttle Carrier Aircraft as it brought the Space Shuttle Endeavour to Los Angeles. Also returning to the museum after a loan to The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis are five NASA research models used to explore ideas of how humans could travel to – and return from – space.
To celebrate these models, the party will involve hands-on games and activities, as well as speakers, story time, snacks and door prizes. A special thanks to the Muncie Astronomy Club, Rocketeers of Central Indiana, Muncie Public Library, and Toys Forever Models & Hobbies for joining us in these activities.
