If you are military, ask for discounted rate since they are not posted. Free for active and others $9. Great visit, lots of great interactive display. Must watch 10 minute film.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I saw the movie which was informative and interesting. The displays in the museum is worth a walk through. Being unable to walk far I didn't walk around the meteor. I truly recommend a visit.
