While there, you’ll learn about Long Island’s part in the history of flight as you explore The Cradle of Aviation Museum, located on land that was once part of Mitchel Air Force Base. The museum’s eight galleries chronicle over 100 years of aerospace history! Next, stop by the Nassau County Firefighter’s Museum, a 10,000 square foot interactive facility where you can experience and trace the history of firefighting in Nassau County. You’ll find both historic and contemporary firematic memorabilia and equipment.
