  • I like this spot better than the Smothsonian Air and Space Museum downtown. It is larger so I could move around. A huge display of flying machines ranging from the Enola Gray to the Discovery...  more »
  • Passing through the area and decided to stop by this place because it looked neat. Figured we spend an hour and be back on the road. We spent the whole day here! So much to see and do! Being able to.....  more »
  • Like this museum very much. We just keep coming back. It is suitable for kids of all ages. For younger kids it is parent job to tell stories, but when kids grow up they can explore it on their own...  more »

  • Aug 11 4pm. My wife and I took our 5 yr old, 2 yr old and 5 month old to this museum. A third of it was closed for cleaning but we still did get through all off the open parts in the 1. 5 hrs we were there. The kids really enjoyed it. Masks were required and social distancing was expected and easy to do in the very large area. The hanger is full of life size planes. There were less than 25 p people in the museum. If you go after 4 parking is free and the museum is always free.
  • Fantastic! The buildings themselves are impressive, and what is inside amazing. The planes and spacecraft are restored with intricate detail. They have a lot of them hanging from the ceiling with elevated walks so you are able to see them up close. Informational signage is available throughout so you can understand the significance of many of the crafts. They are currently doing a roofing project on the facility, so they have a decent amount of the planes covered in plastic, so that was a little bit of a bummer, but I understand a facility like theirs requires constant maintenance. Great experience for the kids and Dad alike!
  • One of the best tech museums in the world i have seen so far. So much history. All authentic, all in very good condition. Cosmic section is especially interesting. The cost of visiting this museum is free, with exception of some tours and special attraction. However they do cheat on it, taking quite a price for parking. The museum itself is in quite a distance from any closest location. However it is still absolutely walkable distance to the closest Inn, and motels, so if you good with your feet, no problem just walk in there. Highly recommend to visit.
  • Normally a 5 star museum, four stars was generous for our most recent visit. Most of the aircraft in one wing of the building were covered in plastic due to exterior repairs. Covid 19 restrictions further limited flow. The wing with the space shuttle is open and fully accessable. worth the trip to see it if you're never seen one that actually flew in orbit.
  • Great way to get out with kids during the Covid crisis. They are doing a good job of managing the number of visitors and on our visit there was plenty of room. The center its self is seriously impressive. Even with a lot of it closed for maitiance and to manage people's traffic.....it impressed.
