Create your own art party with our online experience that combines a dash of decoration, a pinch of airplane history, and recipes for vintage cocktails to awaken your inner-aviation artist.

Air crews have long flown into harm’s way embolden by personal artwork that decorated their planes. Now let The Museum of Flight's Nose Art Cocktail Party help you combat the daily grind. During this online program, our Curator entertains you through the history of military airplane Nose Art, and our drink master will show you how to make the classic World War II cocktails that helped win the battles on all fronts.

We help you prepare for the party by providing a booklet with detailed, delicious cocktail recipes, nose art history and an assortment of nose art templates (like a coloring book!). Adorn the pages or create original paintings using your favorite medium. And voila! Shaken or stirred, your Nose Art is a masterpiece, and the cocktail party a success.

This event is for ages 21+.
