Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum

Details

Tucked away in the heart of the nostalgic Lowry neighborhood, Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum allows guests to step back in time in a WWII-era hangar. The museum’s collection of aircraft not only serves as a special backdrop for any event, but guests can also explore the cockpits of select military planes like the A-7D Corsair II and FB-111A Aardvark. Visitors can also enjoy the observation tower and patio that overlooks a B-52 Stratofortress, or the mezzanine, which offers a bird’s eye view of the hangar. On a beautiful Colorado evening, the majestic hangar doors can open to let the cool breeze in.

Whether it’s a corporate meeting, training session, cocktail party, fundraiser, lunch, bar/bat mitzvah, wedding reception or tradeshow, add that uncommon twist to your event and make it memorable with Wings.
