Half the time the exhibits are out of order. They don't seem to use much of the $20+ entry fee to maintain exhibits or update anything. It's really disappointing to visit more than once...like ever. the IMAX is really good and the only saving grace. It just does not compare to ANY other air and space museum I've ever been to. I wish they'd do more interesting special events in cooperation with Langley and NASA. I heard it okay if you rent the whole place out for an event. Just..... disappointing. Not buying another year pass for here.

Good museum with a lot of hands on experiences. Nothing in comparison to the Air and Space Museum in Washington DC. I think the price is a little high for the size of the museum. Still I loved the observation deck and the view.

Since I was a young child I always have had an interest in human space exploration. During my career in the United States Navy I had visited, at least annually, the Virginia Air and Space Center and always enjoyed the experience. I have met Star Trek actors and real-life astronauts during some of those past visits.
Just recently I had a desire to impart some of that learned past knowledge, share current explorations and experiences, and present some visions of the future to my seven-year-old grandson.
He participated in many of the hands-on displays and "flew" rockets and spaceships, taking a "trip" to Mars and other planets, saw a real Moon rock, and a real spacecraft in the Apollo 12 Command Module. He learned about engineering "building" bridges and constructing a rocketship in the STEM exhibit. We had a wonderful day together and wants to return. Maybe, someday . . .

Always enjoy taking my kids here. Fun and engaging displays and activities. Makes it fun for them to learn a little about aviation and space. They rotate in new displays every few months.

Many exhibits in less-than-stellar shape. Some not working at all. I found the museum to be completely underwhelming and not worth the outrageous entrance fee. I love museums but this one just didn't do much for me or my guest.
