Lakeland, FL (June 25, 2018) – Aerospace Discovery at the Florida Air Museum is excited to announce an agreement with The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to host their traveling exhibit, NOAA: Where Science Meets Service.
Launched in 2017, the exhibit includes artifacts from the agency’s rich history and highlights the many ways in which NOAA and its employees serve the nation each and every day. NOAA has facilities nationwide, including the NOAA Aircraft Operations Center in Lakeland, Florida—home to the NOAA Hurricane Hunters.

More about NOAA
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is a federal agency that enriches life through science. NOAA’s reach goes from the surface of the sun to the depths of the ocean floor as it works to keep citizens informed of the changing environment around them.
From daily weather forecasts, severe storm warnings, and climate monitoring to fisheries management, coastal restoration and supporting marine commerce, NOAA’s products and services support economic vitality and affect more than one-third of America’s gross domestic product. NOAA’s dedicated scientists and other experts use cutting-edge research and high-tech instrumentation to provide citizens, planners, emergency managers and other decision makers with reliable information they need when they need it.
NOAA’s highly skilled workforce includes officers with the NOAA Commissioned Officer Corps—one of the nation’s seven uniformed services. Trained in engineering, earth sciences, oceanography, meteorology, and other disciplines, NOAA Corps officers command NOAA’s fleet of research and survey ships, pilot the agency’s specialized aircraft, and serve in a variety of scientific and management roles.
