Be 10 again -- NASA, Apollo Launches ... and you get to put on a Space Suit!

If you ever stayed home from school in the 60's to watch astronauts being sent into space, this is the place for you! You get a chance to remember all of the astronauts--Neil, Buzz, John Glenn, etc. (and read about new ones on the Space Station-Giffords), you can sit in a Mercury capsule, test echos (very cool!), listen to Walter...

This is a very nice facility with some interesting exhibits. We particularly liked seeing the exhibits regarding how the astronauts live (i.e., foods, personal items, etc.) It's definitely worth a visit.

Found this museum to be interesting but not spellbinding. Its small and there is never a crowd. The staff is helpful and pleasant. If driving through Alamogordo, then stop by.

The facility is on a hill overlooking Alamogordo and the White Sands Park. It has lots of demonstrations and history of the space program. Can climb into a Mercury Space Capsule.

My husband has always been fascinated with space travel. We visited this Museum and he got to dress up in a space suit. This made his day! We were there for an hour and were reminded of all the men/women who have made space exploration possible. I wish the US was spending more money for such projects rather than to... More

It was a very informative listing of all those involved over the years in our achievements in space. It gives one a sense of the scale of the brave undertakings of mankind in space. An added treat, along with this & the attached Museum of Space History is the IMAX film in the planetarium style dome. We saw the 'Journey... More

I wrote a review under the New Mexico Museum of Space History. This Hall of Fame is contained in the same building. I would say that you should go. There is a small entry fee, but there is plenty to see. Very informative.

My husband and I enjoyed stopping by this museum during our vacation to Alamogordo. The outside displays are nice, we had fun playing with the sound wave dishes! Inside the museum we liked learning about the space age and how New Mexico was part of it. While not a large museum it is still full of good exhibits. At the... More
