There is a lot to see and do here, more than I expected, and the shuttle take off simulator experience was great, the displays and talks fascinating/informative ,well worth the visit .Not so much for very young children though, more for 'big kid' adults and teens.

The actual AF Station was closed due to heightened threats, but the museum was really interesting and the staff very informative. There was a great selection of gifts and we purchased many things. They close at 2pm on Fridays, but stayed open a little longer for our visit. We especially like the pictures of the space animals, the monkeys mostly!

We spent a day there and enjoyed every minute. Seeing the actual shuttle up close was awesome. Recommend a visit if you are in the area.

This was by far our most memorable experience on our tour of the States. We went when there was supposed to be a rocket launch to the Space Shuttle but it was cancelled at T minus 3!

The moon stones were fantastic. An actual rocket is on display with access to the command module, moon rovers and G-suits were also on display.
