The Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium, located in Tulsa Oklahoma, chronicles the incredible aerospace heritage of Tulsa which includes early Tulsa aviators, the rise of the Tulsa Municipal Airport, the work done at Douglas Tulsa, American Airlines, North American, Rockwell, McDonnell Douglas and Boeing. The museum is the repository for not only its own aircraft and aircraft collection garnered over the last 15 years but it is also custodian of the Tulsa Airport Authority collection that includes the Charles W. Short collection. Additionally, in May 2006, Tulsa became home to one of the only three planetariums in the world to have advanced digital technology, bringing full-dome educational experiences to Tulsa for the first time. Since the initial opening of the James E. Bertelsmeyer planetarium, over 150,000 people have experienced one of the many shows offered on a daily basis. For many students, this has been their first encounter with the vastness of our universe, the challenges of space travel and the science of astronomy. The Museum and Planetariumís facility plays a vital role in discovery-based learning for thousands of students.
