Sad to hear this at the gate today when I went to visit. I was really looking forward to seeing this. We were given no details about when it would open again.

Tried to visit this museum today (March 2017) but was told on the entry to Moffett Field that it's closed indefinitely. No other details were given. Well worth emailing or calling in advance to see if it's open before going.

My 9-years old son was very impressed. He liked all the activities and his dad really enjoyed talking to the staff. It is not a big crowded museum but very nice place to spend several hours.
