Overshadowed by the airplane, the airship—a rigid or semi-rigid balloon, powered by engines—has a colorful history. Learn about these fascinating machines and the new airship designs for the 21st century. Then design your own airship!

Explore the exciting world of flight in fun hands-on workshops offered every Saturday and Sunday! Family workshops are free with Museum admission and open to all ages (kids six and under should come with an adult helper). Groups with 10 or more children please call ahead to find out whether we will be able to accommodate your group. Contact our Interpretive Programs Coordinator at 206-768-7187.
