Not bad for a visit, and good views over the town. Film in the planetarium was good, but the displays are a bit 'wordy' - too much reading on the walls and not really much to look at.

For those of us that grew up with the space program, this was great. You really appreciate how brave those men and women were, going up in things that are held together with duct tape and baling wire.

We visited this very modern museum of space history. It was greatest to review the space history that thrilled us in our lifetime. A wonderful museum for children. We saw a good number of younger visitors delighted with the models and hands on exhibits.

If you are interested in anything related to the space programs of yesterday, today, and tomorrow, you will enjoy the Museum of Space History. Many displays of rockets, missiles, and capsules are outdoors, and the history is indoors. A must for kids of all ages!!
