Fun and learning blast off over three space-themed days. There’s something for everyone at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum this Family Day weekend! Meet an Astronaut, Space Virtual Reality, Planetarium and more.

Family Day weekend also marks the debut of a new exhibit: “Health in Space”. “Health in Space” explores how gravity, radiation, and isolation all pose unique health challenges for astronauts living and working in space. Highlights include authentic artifacts, interactive experiences, and video interviews with Canadian astronauts.

There will also be plenty of intergalactic activities for children throughout the weekend, from fun daily presentations demonstrating how flight works to the chance to build your own mini jet pack.
