WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Children piled into the Dream Flight USA Shuttle at the Woodson Art Museum in Wausau to learn about space flight.

The bus featured all kinds of instruments astronauts use in space.

Organizers said the traveling education center is a valuable teaching tool.

"We want them to realize that learning is the key to a successful life," said Nick Ryan, director of the Dream Flight USA Foundation.

The managers of the Dream Flight USA Shuttle travel all over Wisconsin, educating more than 3,500 children throughout the year.

Last weekend, it was showcased along with the Woodson Art Museum's NASA Art: 50 Years of Exploration exhibit.

The Dream Flight Shuttle left Wausau at 5 p.m., but the NASA Art: 50 Years of Exploration exhibit will run through June 17.
