Explore the fascinating world of aviation and space just 10 miles from our boutique hotel on Long Island. The Cradle of Aviation Museum
in Nassau County is where over 100 years of aerospace history comes to life. With more than 75 air and space crafts on display in the galleries, an IMAX theater, and a planetarium, this museum makes a fun day trip when you stay at our luxury inn.
Adults and kids of all ages will enjoy visiting the Cradle of Aviation Museum. Begin your visit in the eight galleries that take you through the history of flight. Climb into the cockpit of a fighter jet or see the actual Apollo Lunar Module up close. Along the way, you can learn how Long Island played an important role in the space race with hands-on exhibits.
Check the schedule at the IMAX theater
to see what's showing in the amazing full-dome theater where you can see movies at 10 times the size of a normal film! The JetBlue Sky Theater Planetarium takes you on incredible journeys into the solar system. The all-digital experience will take your breath away. Step into the nostalgic video game craze in the Retro Video Game Exhibit and try your luck at your favorite games that span from 1972-1999.
The museum is only a 15-minute drive from our all-suites hotel in Woodbury. Admission to the Cradle of Aviation Museum is $15 for adults and $13 for children. There are also special combination tickets available for planetarium and IMAX films that start at $20.
