Housed in this historic 40,000 sq. ft. 1930's-era former Air Force hangar, Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum maintains a collection of over three dozen aircraft and space vehicles.

The space technology exhibits at Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum include models and displays demonstrating spacecraft and missile technology both historically and in the future. Explore the science of spaceflight with our interactive exhibit and experience the adventure!

The Space Station Module started life as Martin-Marietta's mock-up for a proposed space station entry to be called "Freedom." The original proposal was for an American-only space station. The concept was later changed to include Russia and the European Space Agency and became known as the International Space Station. Martin's entry into the proposal race was rejected and ultimately found its way to the Museum.

The is also an Apollo Command Module boilerplate. This is a full scale replica which was used by NASA to develop and test capsule retrieval procedures and train astronauts for the Apollo missions to the moon.

Anchoring the south-east corner of Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum's main floor is an actual interstage skirt from a Titan IV rocket. Lockheed Martin built Titan IV's to launch large National Defense payloads into earth orbit. A Titan IV was also used to launch the National Aeronautical and Space Administration's (NASA) Cassini probe to the planet Saturn.

There are an assortment of scale models ranging in size from a table-top diorama of a moon base to a sixteen foot model of a Titan II launch vehicle as well as several hands-on exhibits demonstrating some of the conditions encountered in space.
