Airplane Day

Wheels up for some high-flying fun!

Join us and discover the answer to the burning question “Why did they build the fort so close to the airport?” This high-flying event includes guided tours, special photo “sweet spots” for the best angles to photograph incoming aircraft and so much more. Meet expert plane-spotters, listen to pilots talk to the control tower, enjoy the special Wings Over Fort Mifflin exhibit, and take in the views of the planes soaring above. Experience the best plane watching spot in Philadelphia as declared by Philadelphia Magazine’s Best of Philly Awards in 2023!
