Went to this museum on a recent day trip and I found it wasn't too bad. Almost like a smaller version of the National Air Space Museum. The had some good exhibits, some interactive exhibits and stuff geared towards kids. A few galleries were being revamped and some exhibits needed repair. They were offering free IMAX tickets but did not have the time. Most of the visitors were wearing masks, which was a good thing and most were practicing social distancing. Overall not too many visitors, but it was a weekday. A big plus was the free parking at the parking deck across the street. It sort of made up for the cost. The pros: 1. There are things to keep the kids busy. 2. Most of the exhibits weren't too bad. 3. Free parking in the parking deck across the street. The cons: 1. The cost!!!! 2. The need to stay on top of the broken exhibits. 3. They only had discounts for active duty military, what about the veterans and retirees????

Very disappointed that masks were not enforced in the IMAX theatre. Everyone had a mask on in line but when we took our seats in the theater literally every family excepts us and another family took their masks off! I was shocked! I walked out and spoke to 2 employees about it and was told someone would be in to address but no one ever came. There was enough room for all to be social distanced but since we were in a indoor theatre, masks should’ve been enforced like their websites states. While walking through the rest of the museum most did have masks on. The museum was just okay, there were some interactive activities that were not working. I felt the exhibits were geared toward kids 12+ and adults.

We spent $73 to visit today, and about 80% of the exhibits were either broken or locked up; I've included several photos of the broken items, but very few things were actually working. The cafe barely had anything to choose from, and the staff was obviously unconcerned about visitor comfort and happiness. I'm very sorry that I wasted so much money here, and I will not make that mistake again.

This museum has had many of the same exhibits for the last 25 years. Half of the exhibits there do not function correctly, if at all. Currently they are showing two IMAX movies, neither of which is about space. Save your money, visit some place else.

This is a nice way to spend a few hours. Due to Covid all museums require a face mask and spacing of 6 feet apart from others. Nice displays.
