“Very Enjoyable - Must be on your Schedule”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

If you are into space or aviation in anyway at all this is the place to go. We spent 4 hours and didn't finish everything. There is a lot to see an learn here and should definitely be on the agenda.

There is food inside the Museum including Pizza, McD's etc as well as coffee. A smaller portable McD's is outside the Meseum as well.

A highly recommended place to go.

“Fun for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Kids were very impressed by all the airplanes and space engines. The crowd is a bit overwhelming though!

Loved the space flight displays and seeing the Wright Brother plane from Kitty Hawk was really nifty.

“Love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

As a former Space Camp employee, I was in Heaven when visiting this museum. I loved to share with my children all the history of the US space program. Make sure you clear a few hours. There is a lot of valuable information packed in such a small space.
