Naval Aerospace Medicine Exhibit
The Naval Aerospace Medicine Exhibit will engage our visitors, meeting Navy leadership’s vision and focus on training, proficiency and readiness. The exhibit it also designed to impact our school-age visitors, with learning objectives tied to Florida’s official educational standards for grades K-12 (CPALMS) through coordination with the district’s curriculum setters.
The Naval Aerospace Medicine exhibit is the result of a long collaboration between the National Naval Aviation Museum, the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation and the Naval Aerospace Medical Community. We hope to share the hands-on experience with our nearly one million annual visitors. The Naval Aerospace Medicine Exhibit will provide visitors valuable insight and knowledge about the rigors that those in the aviation community endure. Exhibit development is underway with input from Naval Flight Surgeons and Aerospace Medicine Specialists, Naval Aerospace Physiologists, Experimental Psychologists and Optometrists, and we look forward to collaborating with the medical community.
