“Interesting but nothing too special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We found the air and space museum interesting, but nothing too exciting. We might have had our expectations too high due to the reviews on here as we were slightly disappointed. It still has alot of great information though and it is free which makes it even better. We enjoyed our visit there but i wouldnt rave about it, it was just like another museum to us and didnt stand out from the rest.

“Space Space and planes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

All I can say is my husband turned into a little kid, wide eyed and anxious to see it all. His friend came down from Maryland and we spent 4 hours roaming and exploring. Still it wasn't enough time to see everything.
