I spent a whole afternoon there and wished I had started sooner. I would definitely advise this is a good place to spend an entire day for anybody genuinely interested in discovering more details about our early space exploration program. The building itself is a marvel to behold, and it is very accessible for handicapped individuals also. The exhibits are... More

Museum has a comprehensive collection of space artifacts, and each floor takes the traveler through a period in space exploration history. Flight simulator was fun. Worth the trip for sure!! The view is amazing also!! Great for Photos!

We went to this Museum after the NM Space and History Museum to see a film about the space experience. This is a theater-in-the-round. The chairs are comfortable and set for leaning way back to watch the ceiling. The film was delayed almost 30 minutes bc of a school group that was late in arriving. We thought the effect of... More

If you like space travel, you will like this place. There are several displays of actual clothing and other things used in space. Also have a wonderful IMAX that shows great films about space travel.

Traces the history of inductees into the Space hall of fame and their biography. A few exhibits. Was entertained by reading the most recent inductee, the man who created Star Trek. Suggest you also visit the Space Museum and also the Dome Theatre IMAX

Husband is really into space stuff - this museum / hall of fame is worth a visit. They have lots of different types of space shuttle paraphernalia. Most of the items are older - I guess that's what a museum would have ... In a separate building they feature several different shows - they are worth seeing, or at least... More
