  • Great little museum with real exhibition items like a space suit, meteorites, spacecraft panel etc. It's free, so you can drop by for just 10 minutes or go for 6th time and see if they have any new artifacts. Volunteers are engaged and knowledgeable. Be sure to check out the annual Space Festival with real astronauts.
  • Interesting displays but it is very small and limited interactive activities.
  • A fun little museum with knowledgeable volunteers and great artifacts - many of them you can touch or try on! Can be visited in as little as 20 minutes or as long as a couple hours of you're interested in the details and stories. Also, it's free!
  • It's so incredible and I love it
  • It is closed 3:35 on Sunday when its website, outgoing voice message, and storefront sign says it is open Sunday's until 4.
