“Neat Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2006

We enjoyed our visit to the space museum.

They have outside displays of rockets, etc Including the sled that a man rode in at 632 mph in 1954! (see photo)

Inside you take the elevator to the 4th floor. What I really liked is how you start at the top and the exhibits wind themselves down to the floor below and keep going down. You don't take see one floor and have to take the elevator to another other floor for more displays. It's a continuous flow from one floor to the next! That was neat!

They had displays about the moon travels, space shuttle, astronauts - their clothes and space food, satellites, meteorites, etc. Everything about space including the future spaceport planned to be built in NM.

Here are some pictures from our visit:
