Museum of Flight

Education cannot happen just at school

Understanding the culture of a nation, people, or group—the arts, beliefs, customs, practices, values, and social behaviors—lies at the heart of APEC. By attending cultural events, a APEC student experiences firsthand the diverse offerings of culture and artistic expression found in a community.

 

Education cannot happen just at school—it must go beyond the walls of the classroom. Watching a play performed
live is quite a different experience than reading a play from a book. Through attendance at events, APEC
students broaden their horizons and gain unique insights into their own communities as well as a broader global
perspective of our world’s diverse cultures.

The independent, non-profit Museum of Flight is one of the largest air and space museums in the world,

attracting more than 400,000 visitors annually. The Museum’s collection includes more than 150 historically
significant air- and spacecraft, as well as the Red Barn®—the original manufacturing facility of The Boeing Co.

The Museum’s aviation and space library and archives are the largest on the West Coast. More than 100,000

individuals are served annually by the Museum’s on-site and outreach educational programs. The Museum of Flight
is accredited by the American Associations of Museums, and is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution.
