The Museum of Aviation Foundation and the Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame present the second annual Winter Wonderfest to be held on January 30 and January 31 at the Museum of Aviation.
Children and adults alike will enjoy the winter-themed activities featuring our most popular attraction from last year, the two 65 foot snow tubing slides made from real snow. Other outdoor and indoor activities include a stunt jumpz, jousting, rock wall climbing, bounce houses, a snow ride around the museum, a craft show, food truck vendor festival, “Elsa” from the movie “Frozen” and much more. Enjoy these activities Saturday, January 30 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and Sunday, January 31 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.
The armband prices are based on children’s ages. Children age 6 and under are $12 which includes snow tubing, horse rides, bounce houses, a meeting with “Elsa”, rock climbing wall and guided snow ride around museum. Children ages 7 and older are $15 which includes all of the above plus Stunt Jumpz, a free fall from 4 stories high! There is no fee for admission to the museum, to view exhibits or to participate in the food truck vendor festival. Parents who are accompanying children with an armband do not need to pay any additional fee unless they are purchasing an armband for themselves. Parents of young children may accompany the child for the snow tubing with the use of the child’s armband.

B-17 Has Changed Since It Has Arrived
The past two months have brought about considerable change for the B-17. The windows are out, the ball turret is disassembled, and multiple pieces are ready for the depaint and preservation process.
In addition to maintenance moving forward, we have instituted the 17 for 17 sponsorship program. This program allows sponsors to make a one time donation or have their account debited $17 each month for 17 months to support the B-17 restoration effort.
With the holidays coming up, remember that our gift shop is the perfect place to purchase gifts for the B-17 enthusiast, as well as gifts for children of all ages.
