This is a nice place to visit but it's not very big. You only need about an hour to tour the whole place. If your into planes and war stuff it's for you. The Mars exhibit was small and due to Covid a lot of things had to be closed. My children and I still enjoyed it.

We visited the center with three adults and two older teenagers. All of us enjoyed ourselves very much. We did Mars EscapeRoom and had a great time. Look forward to doing other EscapeRoom on our return visit. There is much to look at and experience.

This little museum got a new addition in 2019...a Mars habitat installed by a NASA engineer. There is also an Escape Room and fun activities for kids of all ages. Check it out!

This discovery center/museum seems to be in the midst of a shift. It looks like it used to be your traditional airplane museum. There are a few airplanes insides but a bunch outside, maybe 10 planes outside. Most of what is outside is newer, meaning 1970s on. Inside is generally earlier. Inside you find engines and large wall posters that tell the story of airplanes going back to World War I. The inside also has several airplane simulators. You sit in front of 3 relatively large tv screens and fly your plane. A volunteer helps to walk you through what to do. Now the transition part-it seems to be heading more towards the STEM field. About 1/3 of the museum floor seems to be shifted over to a Mars explorer activity. It seems more designed for kids. They also have escape room stuff though we didn't make use of it. One part I was frustrated with, the whole center of the floor when you enter has been cleared up so a lot of the engines/planes are pushed over to the sides. I don't know if the planes and engines are going to come back out to get their floor space or the museum is going to continue to move towards the STEM / Mars stuff. Overall it is a nice museum and worth the visit.

My favorite part of this museum is the 6 foot globe onto which can be projected photos of the planets, the sun, the moon, asteroids, for astronomy fans. For fans of earth science, many other things can be projected onto the globes, such as weather patterns. You are relying on finding a museum employee who is willing and able to give you a personal demonstration; we were fortunate the day we visited because it wasn't busy. As an adult, I'm not sure I would want to visit the same time as a large school group. My husband enjoyed the flight simulator, but the nice young man who was assigned to escort us was not as helpful as we would have liked. My husband had no idea what he was doing and basically kept crashing the airplane into the ground at high speed. Good thing this was just make believe. Regarding other exhibits in the museum, some have good explanatory plaques while others are harder to understand without an escort.
