Bird Aviation Museum and Invention Center is 12 mi. e. of US 95 on Sagle Rd., following signs to 325 Bird Ranch Rd. The museum hangar exhibits six mint-condition aircraft (1927-72) and motor vehicles from the same period. Additional displays include military uniforms, models, artwork and items from NASA.
The Imagination Room honors inventors who perfected products ranging from Kitty Litter and Barbie dolls to microprocessors and the artificial heart. An upstairs gallery displays a respiratory ventilator and an Anti-“G” Suit used by high-altitude pilots, both invented by museum co-founder Dr. Forrest Bird.
