The displays are limited by our own surrender of the space race. The theater and presentations are good (ok stellar). The museum sits impressively on the hill. Avoid the relief route and take time to be the spaceman once more. Or spacewoman.

There are very good exhibits inside and out and lots of information about space travel. we were disappointed with the planetarium as it was basically an advert for Google and it's moon space race. We had expected a space film history.

My boys (23yrs) and (17yrs), my husband and I were very impressed with the lay out and props of this museum both inside and out. Well done! I would love to go back and I recommend it to any one. It's a must see!

Good exhibit most of it was training mock up. But good history of space travel. No where near to air and spacr in D.C. But not claiming to be. It's a good walk down space history lane

This museum was different from others we have visited. The missile exhibits make a visit to White Sands National Monument more meaningful. There are renovations that will allow for more exhibits in the future. Our 4 year old grandson enjoyed hands on exhibits, including posing...More
