We used our points from recyclingperks.com to print a buy-one-get-one-free coupon for our family of four. Parking garage is free across the street. The original Mercury & Apollo capsules were amazing to see. The docents were filled with friendly information. But I was disappointed with so many of the interactive displays that didn't work, and the non-scientific speculations about the origins of life (that were presented as facts).

This museum is very interesting . I liked the exhibits and being able to explore history,as if you were on the plane with the crew during wartime. You can go inside several airplanes and see lots of history about Apollo , Sputnik, & NASA ..The history is all around this area and Ft Monroe There is a lot of firsts,like the Wright Brothers that flew the first plane in Kitty Hawk, NC. You will enjoy the IMAX theater which changes shows often.

This center is okay. If you have children teenager and younger it's better. The Imax theater is very nice and worth a movie.

Many exhibits to keep young and old busy. Flight simulator was fun, but I almost threw up. IMAX is outstanding but cost extra
