The Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum, set in a 1930s hangar that was part of the now-closed Lowry Air Force Base, seeks to educate and inspire people of all ages about aviation and space endeavors of the past, present and future. The museum celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2014.

Inside are more than four dozen aircraft and space vehicles, among them a B-18A Bolo, an RF-84K Thunderflash Parasite, an Alexander Eaglerock built in Colorado and a Star Wars X-Wing fighter. Space and rocketry exhibits demonstrate spacecraft and missile technology of the past and the future.

Exhibits and programs are aimed at all generations, including a Kidspace show that travels through Colorado and a Wings Aerospace Science Program for teachers.

An admission fee is charged.
