The second floor, which is handicap accessible, is the Garrett Reisman Center for Air & Space. Named for a native New Jersey astronaut, the Center has an innovation lab with a lite brite wall, magnetic ball wall, and an iPad table. The exhibit space takes visitors through the science of flight with a helicopter cab they can sit in and also features a display dedicated to a local aviation pioneer, Ike Schlossbach.
Coming Soon: The Center will soon feature a look at the early stages of space exploration, constellations, a collection of Mr. Reisman's personal belongings including his NASA flightsuit, items on loan from NASA directly, and other exciting visual displays of space and beyond!
