Description

With a mission to preserve Oklahoma’s aerospace history and to inspire science-based learning through discovery, the Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium (TASM) has carved out a unique niche in the Oklahoma museum community. TASM has been exposing students to real-world applications of STEM for over 15 years.
Education is provided in a stimulating environment that includes inspirational stories of aerospace pioneers and events, unique and priceless aircraft, computer flight simulators, cockpit trainers, demonstrations, and simulated space voyage experiences.

Mission

Preserving Oklahoma’s aerospace heritage to inspire science-based learning through discovery.

History

Our story began in 1998 in a 1940’s hangar on the Spartan School of Aeronautics’ campus. In 2005, TASM moved into the Sherman and Ellie Smith Hanger One (its current location) on a 17.8 acre campus on the north side of the Tulsa International Airport. With the help of Tulsa County’s Vision 2025 proposition, the James E. Bertelsmeyer Planetarium opened in 2006, providing many Oklahomans their first experience in a planetarium.
Since it’s inception, TASM has grown into viable and well-managed operation that attracts increasing numbers of students and visitors, establishing its position not only as a center for educational enrichment, but as a tourism and convention resource for Tulsa. Since the public opening in May 1998, the museum has welcomed over 600,000 visitors through its doors.

Artifact Collections

Aviation and space artifacts including locally built aircraft as well as an F-14A Tomcat.

Research Collections

Aviation and Space library as well as the Tulsa International Airport's photograph collection that dates to 1928. Large photo file of Tulsa aviation to 1906.

Educational Programs

During the school year we offer our STARBASE program that brings area school children to the museum one day a week for five weeks. During the summer we offer our Aerospace Summer Camp. The camps are one week long and grade specific for $198.00. During the school year we offer one day mini-camps on days when children are out of school but parents have to work. We also have a Boy Scout and Girl Scout Aviation Merit Badge Program and Astronomy Badge Program respectively. Docent guided tours are offered for groups of 10 or more.
