Mad Max like Gyrodyne Rotorcycle

Mad Max like Gyrodyne Rotorcycle is on display for your up close perusal at the National Museum of Transportation in our Really Cool Stuff exhibit. This small-sized helicopter was dropped to downed pilots stranded behind enemy lines by the U.S. Navy. This particular model is equipped with Porsche 4-cylinder internal combustion engine. Our rotorcycle is just one of several unique pieces in our Orthwein's visitor center, some never on display before

Santa with Reindeer and Visits Via Helicopter

Santa has chosen to celebrate the holidays this Friday and Saturday, November 24th and 25th, at St. Louis's very own National Museum of Transportation. Friday the 24th, Santa and live reindeer will visit with children from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at our Orthwein Center. Bring those requests! Saturday the 25th, Santa flies in by helicopter near Orthwein at 10 a.m. and will be visiting with children until 2 p.m. Since Santa will have really enjoyed his Thanksgiving feast, there won't be enough room in the helicopter for Rudolph. No matter--seeing Santa fly in just to listen to kiddo's requests will be perfect! The miniature train will be operating both days from 9:20 a.m. to 3:20 p.m. Can't make it to see Santa but still want to ride the train? Sunday the 26th would be a fabulous day for that excursion, 11:40 a.m. to 3:20
