We visited the National Soaring Museum and gave my husband a flight as a gift for his birthday this year. The Museum is relatively small, but very interesting and covers the history of soaring through models, life-size replicas and actual gliders from its earliest history in the 19th Century through today. There are a few kid-oriented hands-on activities. My husband was thrilled with his glider ride and wishes we lived closer so he could take it up! You can see a short video of his flight and an interview with him and a youth pilot at http://www.brainiacgetaways.com/ridin-the-thermals-at-the-national-soaring-museum-in-elmira-ny/.
