Wacky, whimsical, and just plain weird flying machines from many years ago are still on exhibit at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. The exhibit Ascent…When Dreams Defy Gravity, is an aviation exhibit that is helping to pave the way for the Fort Worth Air & Space Museum. Ascent gives you a view of aerospace artwork, aeronautical engineering, fantasy and future air vehicles, fighter jets, deep space telescopes, and a futuristic view of aerospace technology. Featuring many “hands-on” activities, as well as video content, this exhibit is both educational and intriguing.
Ascent is only open until September 5, 2011 after which part of the exhibit will move on to a nationwide tour.
Entry into Ascent is included with Museum exhibit admission: $14 adults, $10 children (age 2-12) and seniors (age 60+). Museum members are free. Tickets can be purchased online at www.fortworthmuseum.org, by phone at 817-255-9540 or in person.
