Cute park for kids and for those interested in air and space. We have been here a few times for a semi quiet weekend at the park with the little ones. Highway, Mercury Blvd is right there so you have to keep a close eye on kids and there is that noise too.

after visiting the air and space center this was a bit of a let down. however keeping in mind that this place is much older then the center helped the kids to understand the reasoning behind the park.

This facility on mercury blvd is a display of aicraft ,missles, and lauch vehicles. The area floods frequently and the indoor historical exhibit has been transferred to the air and space center. Unless you want to look, take pictures of older flight vehicles it's a waste of time.

Inside are lots of model airplanes, spaceships, etc. It's not huge, but my preschool aged boys really enjoyed it. It took us about 30 minutes, but if you have older... More

You will not be impressed with this place at all. Most of the airplanes are falling apart and the place looks to be in disrepair, museum portion is not impressive.

Not bad for a quick diversion if you're in the area - but don't go out of the way. The aircraft, etc. have not been maintained very well. Not much on the inside (museum) - & the grounds have many low-lying areas - so when it rains, there's quite a bit of flooding. Again, not bad - but more like... More

my niece took many pictures--she has a degrees including photography and this location gave her many interesting objects to photograph from very close parts to groupings and more--needs more funding for upkeep--could be much nicer

I've never been inside as it is always closed. My 4 year old likes to see the rocket displays and play on the playground there.
