  • Really fun and so much to learn. Perfect weekend day activity with wife. We had a blast going to the 3d IMAX like we were kids again!
  • Absolutely amazing museum! I love the amount of interactive exhibits although a couple we're not working. I learned so much about so many different things! Will definitely come back again
  • Fun, but w/lots of non-functioning items. Don't get me wrong... we really enjoyed the museum. I learned a lot, the docent we talked to was a pleasure , and I really liked the smartphone-ready guided tour for getting extra insights. You get to pick one IMAX film, and that was nice, too. However, being repeatedly disappointed when one hands on center after another was non functional or improperly functioning nibbled away at my enjoyment a little more each time until I felt a bit dispirited. You're always going to find a few things not working in any museum, but when it gets to over 50%, there's a problem. Still, I think this museum is HIGHLY worthwhile!
  • We went there expecting to spend a couple hours and ended up being told we had to leave at closing time - around 4 hours later! Very well set up to "draw you into" the story of manned flight. Everytime we turned around something new would catch our interest!
  • Its really just ok kind of enjoyed it.. but wont go back just once is more than enough for me.. if family comes from out of town...wouldn't really reccomend going
