I've been to the museum many times over the last 25 years. When my son way little, I took him twice, and each time he thoroughly enjoyed himself. And why not? What youngster would not love to sit in a REAL jet cockpit, and pretend he/she was flying high, turning & looping through the air? The 'undersea' exhibit was another of his and my favorites, as was the simulated jet take-off. Of course, he loved the gift shop, especially the section where he could buy 'real' dehydrated ice cream - the same kind that the astronauts took with them. And for those who would like to 'suit-up' there are Blue Angel outfits in almost every size. Now, there's an IMAX, which was great fun last time I was there in November 2012, visiting family. While much has changed over the past decades, it has only improved. This is a terrific family, or adult, day trip. So much more than you expect!
