I have been to several business events here. It is interesting to visit. The area has been built up, so there are not a number of restaurants nearby. Its not the Washington Air and Space museum, but it is worth stopping by.

If you are into airplanes, this is the place for you. We had a really good time recently wondering about the museum for a couple of hours. It is small, but very interesting. Something for all ages.

There are some fun interactive exhibits here and the planes are neat to view. This is about 1/4 of the size of the National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC, but its still a great museum for a short afternoon.
