The aerospace Museum is a nice mixture of old and new. They have friendly staff to answer your questions and a cute little gift shop.

Just visited this museum and as we approached, I knew right away that it was a new location. It use to be at McCllean Airforce Base but now its about 1mile down the road. Much nicer. There's a park close by and the kids love that they can go inside the cargo planes, helicopter and an airforce plane. My 2yr... More

This is a fabulous museum with dedicated staff who really know their stuff. They have undertaken the restoration of a number of planes. Exhibits change so you can visit again and see new things.

This is a nice museum that really targets educating the children about the aerospace field. When we arrived there was a classroom field trip in progress and they had many science themed displays to interact with. The staff was friendly, involved, and offered information on the many exhibits they offer. Outside the museum there are many aircraft from the different... More

I personally loved the Star Trek exhibit. I have also been to the one in Vegas which had a lot more things but the one in Sac was still really good. I don't understand what the other reviewer is talking about. However now, the star trek exhibit is no longer their, they were just housing it for a short period... More

The day after Christmas I took my family to see the Star Trek exhibit because we are all big fans. We had coupons for discounts that their website did not make clear that were not usable for this exhibit. I had called several times before driving down there but my call just went to voicemail and my voicemail was never... More
