Great flight simulator

An awesome place, make sure you get a retired F-4 pilot as a docent. Be sure to try the flight simulator.

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.
