TASM BIRTHDAY PARTY – TO 25 AND BEYOND!

June 29 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

TASM ANNOUNCES … TO 25 AND BEYOND!
June 29, 2019 – TULSA, Oklahoma – This Saturday the Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium is turning 25 years old! To celebrate we are inviting our neighbors to come blast off the next quarter-century at an all-day Birthday Party!

From 10:00 am until 4:00p, we are lowering Museum Admission to $2.50 per guest! Every hour we will draw winners giving away exciting items like a FREE Annual Membership, sweet NASA merchandise, Planetarium Tickets and birthday packages.
We are also launching a new concept called “Hangar Chats” that will bring guests and experts face-to-face for a speed-round of learning and Q&A. This day’s chats will include a chance to meet our Founding Father, Lee Raney, and hear why TASM is here and where it’s going.

This day will be for families! From a Chalk-Spacey Competition on the ramp to a Mystery Message Scavenger Hunt through the grounds and a Toddler Story Time in the MD-80, we have all ages covered! We will be welcoming a local High School’s Robotics Team for live Robo-demos throughout the day and even a class on how to choose and use your own telescope.

Members are not left out! This month is our first “Members Only” that will give access to a Sneak-Peek Soiree into our newest 2nd-floor Mezzanine that is now home to an ever changing Exhibition Space that will present not only timely, but also innovative and rare collections for Space and Air History. This July – November will focus on the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Mission! Then, move into the Planetarium for a showing of the movie Interstellar (2014). This month’s Members Only is a 21+ event!

Our 25th birthday is a launch spot for a more robust TASM and we could not be more excited to share it with you! Like our page on Facebook, go to our website, sign up for our newsletter and even become a member to gain access to all that TASM has to offer!
