Great history of the Air Force missile program. Wish I could remember our guide's name but he was a walking history book and was wonderful to talk with. Not a huge place but well worth seeing.
If you know nothing about early space flight, watch "The Right Stuff" movie before coming. You'll enjoy it. If you know more, you will marvel at the ingenuity and inventiveness of the teams behind the various missions. It is not a 'spectacular' destination but one full of genuine equipment inside (and slightly weather-beaten displays outside). The bravery of Alan Shepard... 更多
This place is truly a gem......and it's free, which makes it even better. My kids (2 boys and 1 girl ranging from 19 - 11) all enjoyed the history here.

I thought for sure my son would love this place when I realized it was my daughter that really starting jabbering and almost running from exhibit to exhibit. The whole family will find something they like. ENJOY!
