At Wings Over the Rockies we’re always up to something, and math gets us off the ground.
Celebrate the wonders of mathematics with Math Midway, a traveling exhibit from the Museum of Mathematics, presented by Oppenheimer Funds.
This 4,500-square-foot, carnival-themed exhibit adds fun and excitement to the world of math with more than 20 interactive, playful exhibits including:
Pedal on the Petals
Three Ring Circleous
Mathematical Monkey Mat
The Mysterious Harmonograph
Math Midway is great for all ages. While young children enjoy the brightly colored and engaging exhibits, older children and adults come away with a newfound sense of appreciation for the creative and exciting nature of mathematics.
Join us for the grand opening of the exhibit on Sunday, October 13 with Math Midway at the Hangar, a carnival event with jugglers, face painters and more.
Entrance into Math Midway is included with regular Museum admission.

Wings Over the Rockies is proud to host Wood and Canvas:
The WWI Aviation Art of James Dietz. The exhibit opens July 20th and is
a combination of reproductions of some of Jim’s greatest WWI artworks and
actual artifacts from the time period graciously on loan from collector, Willis
Born in San Francisco, James graduated from Art Center
College of Design in 1969. He had a successful illustration career in Los
Angeles and New York, with a steady flow of work ranging from automobile ads,
movie posters and romantic and historical/action book covers.
By 1978, James’ work gradually shifted away from commercial
illustration to primarily historical aviation, automotive and military art.
Today his work is internationally known and collected; and his style, with its
emphasis on depth of story, is recognized by collectors of historical art.
James has had one-man shows at the Experimental Aircraft
Association (EAA) Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in 1990, 1998 and 2003; San
Diego Air & Space Museum in 1990; and the US Air Force Museum at Wright
Patterson Air Force Base in 2003. In 2001, Barnes & Noble Publishing
released a book on Jim's World War II art entitled Portraits of Combat. His
newest book, Knights in Canvas, explores his amazing WWI art.
The exhibit runs through January 1st, 2014.
Have you ever dreamed about flying a fighter jet? Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum
is excited to partner with Aviation Xtreme Flight Simulation Center.
You can experience the rush of flight in these advanced simulators, now located in our hangar.
Climb into a cockpit like the ones used by real fighter pilots in training. As you
prepare for take-off, you will find yourself surrounded by a massive,
180-degree curved projection screen that offers a truly one-of-a-kind experience.
Fly a wide range of aircraft, like the F-15A Eagle, F-4 Phantom, P-51 Mustang and more.
Museum admission is required for nonmembers, in addition to the cost of the simulator experience.
