To do it without hesitation if we love this kind of Museum.

  • Lots of space and air plane history. Lots of machinery. My husband spent hours looking at things and equipment and reading history.
  • Lots and lots Iof things to see and experience. There was a lot of reading to do about the history of parts of the space program and Stafford's life.
  • Lots to see and explore. My husband really loves anything air and space related. So this was a perfect way to spend an afternoon. With Groupon admission was only $7 for both of us. Leaving extra money to buy a few knick knacks in the gift shop. And don't forget to stop in the educational room complete with flight simulators :)
  • What a gem. World class! Who knew? It can easily take even a casual visitor most of the day to see this informative museum.
  • A lot of history. Great place to visit
