This place has a great variety of aircraft and space craft you can see close up. The admission price is steep but it will be worth it!

See a Blackbird, a Concorde, the Space Shuttle Discovery, and many many other really great original planes. We did a free two hour tour which was brilliant, a very knowledgeable guide. Well worth the trip out to the museum, near the airport

We visited there for the lunar eclipse bad the traffic was insane. Thankfully we already had glasses and found other things to occupy our time while we waited for the eclipse. Parking is $15 (I think) but they accept credit cards.

It would be a minimum of $30-40 one way. Traffic depends on day. It can take 40-60 minutes on a good day.
