Really fun and so much to learn. Perfect weekend day activity with wife. We had a blast going to the 3d IMAX like we were kids again!

We attempted to go to this museum because of the nostalgia and fun exhibits we have always associated with it. Then we get there and it's required to purchase a movie whether or not we attend. This is scummy and ruined the experience altogether. Very disappointed.

We came late in the day but knew we would still have 2 hours to visit the museum because we had checked their website and knew what time they closed. However, when we arrived we found out they were closing an hour early for a "special event". When we asked about any discounted tickets for only being able to view the exhibits for less than an hour they told us "no". It was just disappointing that we couldn't visit and they wouldn't even entertain the thought of a discount since they were closing early. We're visiting from out of town and most likely will never be able to return.

Absolutely amazing museum! I love the amount of interactive exhibits although a couple we're not working. I learned so much about so many different things! Will definitely come back again

We went there expecting to spend a couple hours and ended up being told we had to leave at closing time - around 4 hours later! Very well set up to "draw you into" the story of manned flight. Everytime we turned around something new would catch our interest!
