A great museum to visit with all ages! Even my toddlers/preschoolers enjoyed looking around at all the different displays. The children's area supplies a few small activities for them to do (a grown up or older kid will definitely have to help) and that kept my crew busy for a while! We were bummed the cafe was closed during our visit but hopefully we can make the drive again soon!
Totally loved this place, especially when you first walk in and see the SR71 and space shuttle! People have said they can spend 4 hours here, I say, how fast are you walking? We took a lunch break after 4 hours and then spent an additional 1 and a half hours and still could have spent even more time there. Don't miss the lab, it is so explosive! I almost forgot ... they also have an actual moon rock on display ... so cool!
