Museum Monday: Discover the Airport! Exhibit at Syracuse Airport

There are more than 700 aviation and space-related museums in this country.

Each Monday we visit one of them.  Eventually we’ll hit them all.

This week’s pick: the Discover the Airport! Exhibit at New York’s Syracuse Hancock International Airport.

The exhibit is located right there in the main lobby of the airport terminal and includes the cockpit of a Boeing 727, landing gear, a baggage tug, a mock air control tower and a “marshaller” display that lets you learn about – and practice – signaling techniques needed to help aircraft take-off and land safely.

Sounds like fun!

Know of another great aviation or space museum? Let us know and it may be featured on a future edition of Museum Monday here at
