Technical attractions in US south west.

Hi,

I am going to visit US South West in May 2013.

My route-planing is almost done. I gonna see many nature attractions and big cities. I just like to add some technical attractions too (like technical museums, airplane factories where visitors are allowed to go in, etc). I have got only 2 technical attractions now: Hoover Dam and airplane graveyard in Tucson. It also should be nearby my planned route: http://goo.gl/maps/tO4zR

Thank you.

Tucson isn't on your map. But if you're really going there, consider adding the Titan Missile Museum.

Navajo Bridge, Marble Canyon, AZ; Glen Canyon Dam, Page, AZ; Moki Dugway, Utah. Desert View Watchtower at GCNP is a must see.

There is a supersonic rocket sled test site near Zion in Utah. No tours there though.Peeking over the fence is tough too.Fun to google search to see what went on there. In Vegas is the Atomic Testing Museum.You can actually tour the test sites in the Nevada desert on occasion.In Torrance , California, you can tour the Robinson Helicopter Factory.
