The museum has so much information that we spent the entire day in the museum from the moment they open till they close. At the end of the day we felt like we learned so much about space that it's absolutely money well spent. One thing I hope they can do better was the gift shop. We were expecting a... More

This was a very enjoyable attraction and plenty of parking. On the weekend, parking was NOT a problem. Great for the family.

We love museums where you can touch everything and that is exactly what this museum is. The exhibits are interactive and educational. This museum was fun for the adults as well as the children, with interesting bits of information scattered throughout.

Wonderful place. See something new every time. Subsidized by Langley AFB and NASA Langley. This place is the real. Unlike the Smithsonian in DC, this is an easy off/on kind of place. Wonderful for kids. Also an IMAX with appropiate 1st Run Movies like Star Wars, etc. also tremendous science and nature documentaries. Small Cafe. Great gift shop for science... More

This venue is based on actual participation of the area''s citizens and history in support of our nation; it is most authentic and truly educational; well worth the visit.

Tons of hands on displays and real planes and space craft. They also had people demoing some small robotic toys, which the kids enjoyed. Lovely observation deck on top of the building. Enjoyed an imax movie--one is free with admission. There was also a cool virtual reality thing, for an extra $4, which was worthwhile.

Great place to interact with science and family. Family had a blast. We wish we had more time but we had no idea there was so much to see. Plan on heading back with more time. STEM friendly.

If you are into planes, space and their history, this place is super great! My husband and I enjoy coming here. The location is great too, with restaurants across the street. We also thoroughly enjoy the movie theatre here. They don't play a large array of movies but do have popular ones often. Their theatre is an IMAX and the... More
