“Best ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

This would have to be one of the best aircraft & space museums on the planet. This has interests or the entire family and you could easily spend a full day there. Free entry once you pay for parking $15.00

Kids will lose their mind in the place. Great things to see and definitely go see a movie there in IMAX.

“Still one of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Surprisingly it wasn't as crowded as Nat and Am history, but how can you go wrong spending 2-3 hours here. It is a great reminder why congress needs to fund NASA.

“so much to see, so much to learn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

luckily there was a tour going on just as we walked in the door. we latched onto the group and ended up being the last pair of stragglers, along with a nice couple from australia. the docent/guides bring this amazing place to life and it is just the best fun to follow along and hear the stories behind what we're seeing. oh, and the stories about all the stuff that is too big to get into even that huge space. this visit we watched the film 'to fly' in the imax theater. it was very good and gave us a chance to follow the history of manned flight from the balloon to the moon.... and beyond.
