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

Nice clean facility. Good information and history of space exploration and interactions. I-Max movie complex is good with dome ceiling screen for a huge viewing.

We spent the whole morning there. You start at the top of the building, via elevator, and walk down the ramps seeing all of the exhibits. There are many things to see. Several videos explaining what you are seeing, and how things work. Outside there is a "missile garden" Complete with a crashed V-2 rocket body. The items are all... More

Although it's been a couple of years since I visited, I've been more than once. From Moon Rocks to the Daisy Track this is a good place for family/kids or adults too. If your kids are into 'Space' they will like the activities here. Don't forget the IMAX. I'm ready to go back.

We didn't check out the inside (there's a penny smasher in there), but walking around outside was free and full of intetesting info. Kids favorite: whispering satellites. My favorite: Ham the space chimps grave. Other awesomeness: there's a trailhead by top parking with an easy, scenic hike.

Of the several museums we have visited which are dedicated to space exploration, this it the best one we have seen. It has many static displays outside, including a portion/explanation of a high-speed test track maintained at nearby Holloman Air Force Base, and inside a wide, WIDE range of exhibits which will interest all age groups. There's even an actual... More

The location and building are interesting, also very old. Was not impressed and only mildly entertained by exhibits. Sort of boring to me. Also-was disappointed that the space shuttle Challenger was not mentioned anywhere, nor Christa McAuliff--the teacher who lost her life when the darn thing blew up--isn't that part of space history???? Museum is not up to date and... More

$9 to get in to the museum, only a little extra to include the IMAX. Incredible display, and collection of historic items. There are a few hands on interactive pieces as well. Safe to say I will definitely be coming back.
