Stairs lead to an observation platform where you can see the
Hindenburg replica's aluminum frame, the coated-fabric
skin, and the space that contained the bags of hydrogen gas.
The Hindenburg was designed for helium gas, but the United
States of America--which
controlled the world's supply of helium--refused to sell the gas to Germany,
forcing the Zeppelin company to rely on lighter but more flammable hydrogen.
