“Worth a few hours of your time”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

A very compact museum but almost overflowing with detailed history and artifacts. Even had a space shuttle simulator one may try to land! History presented logically and with appropriate exhibition materials, old to new. IMAX theater worth visiting as well.
