Man what a place. Enjoyed all the sites and cant wait to go back. Free guided tours for in depth knowledge. Be prepared to do some walking. Space shuttle discovery, the enola gay, and some great engines and teardowns to view.

This museum is wonderful! Great for families, or, maybe a romantic date? The IMAX theater inside is awesome! There are several places to eat, as well as a souvenir store. It never gets old, coming here.

No there were no discounts, but free admission when a lot of museum charge both parking and admission it well worth the parking fee.

Parking I believe is 15 dollars that you pay for inside the museum but museum is free of charge. So basically it’s 15dollars for the day whatever way you look at it. Plenty of parking provided.
