Great place if you love planes and space...

Entry fee is a bit high, but there is a lot of cool space stuff in here. Planes and space vehicles show how we made it to the moon and back...

What a great. We spent about four impressive hours going from one plane to another and even entering some and sitting in real cockpit. The capsules from NASA are a must see....The kids went crazy and were so amazed. The staff was so helpful and friendly.

There is much history to view while walking through the Center . It is very exciting and interesting to be near many items that changed part of our world. This is an individual type tour but a couple of well informed ladies were available for any questions related to the center .

While the average adult will like this place, it is mostly geared to children. Love IMAX theaters and that is what attracted me, but remainder and most of center was average experience for me.

I always bring my brothers kids here whenever I'm in town to visit. They enjoy seeing all of the different aircraft they had, and I'm happy to bring them to a place that lets them learn while having fun.

This was a very nice venue for this type of function- convenient location and plenty of room to move around and visit without feeling crowded. The exhibits were very interesting.

Excellent place. For all ages!!! I have been here twice. Once in 2006 and now. It has been updated with new information. Two rooms were closed for renovation. However, this is not a bad thing. It means that the museum stays current with times and new relevant information. The IMAX movie was great. But, maybe a little too short for... More
