I imagine this would be rated higher if I was into this sort of thing in the first place. My husband really enjoyed it. It was smaller then I thought, not sure why. I've spent my time doing way worse.

My teenagers and I really enjoyed our visit to the museum. The staff was very friendly and engaging which my kids really enjoyed. We were able to hear many stories about the past and how NORAD has impacted the area and Canada.
