There are a growing number of air museums, this must rank near the greatest. It certainly has a story to tell as the nearby NASA research center feeds not only disdaly items but also walking and talking docents who lived the story most only dreamed.

We have seen many air and space museums. This was nice. Had many interactive exhibits, but many were not working. Still a nice place to spend a few hours.

If you have someone in the family that enjoys planes and space this is a wonderful place to visit. We just went through the actual museum, but they have IMAX movies as well. Hands on exhibits as well.

This is a very fun place to stop. Lots of fun hands on things to do. Great plane displays. The IMAX show was very well done as well. I would do this again.

We have 3 kids under 10 so it is hard to find places that we can all have fun. There are so many things to do here for all ages. We killed 2 hours looking around and there is a lot of space that the kids could move around and not bother others. Very hands on so don't be afraid... More
