The space museum is much better than the other one in Washington DC. It has many more airplanes and aircraft and is much less crowded. It even has a McDonald's! Very interesting to learn about different planes and see how large they are.

This facility is also available for special events. We had dinner around the airplanes and dessert by the space pod! History of air travel and accomplishments over the years is fascinating!

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.
