The Air Force Museum Theatre

Air Force Museum Simulators

Inside of the museum you will find our Morphis Movie Simulator Ride, a computer controlled simulator for the entire family. Capable of accommodating 12 passengers in contoured seats the capsule rotates and gyrates on hydraulic lifts, giving the passengers the sensation of actually flying along.


Are you a little more daring? Fly our 360° Interactive Simulator. Climb aboard and take control in air to air combat as either a pilot or gunner. Nine different aircraft to choose from plus you can fly solo too.
