Paid $13 to get us in, watch a 5 minute video & take an elevator ride to the top of the tower. The view from the tower was cool, but everything is so far away that it makes it tough to see things. You can pay more money to use their telescope if you'd like. All in all, I think we spent less than 30 mins here and it was not worth our time away from the road (it is a bit of a drive off of the hwy). It would've been nice to have some static displays to tour--- old defunct rail cars, locomotives, etc. The only positive was the the facilities were super clean.
