Armstrong Air & Space Museum Reviews

Visited the Armstrong Air & Space museum for the first time. I have to say that it was a very nice museum with a lot of artifacts related to Neil Armstrong and the trip to the moon. They had a real Gemini space capsule and numerous space suits related to Armstrong. I liked the layout, circular in nature and easy to see everything, including a real moon rock. And there was a video on America's race to the moon which was quite good and informative. I can go on and on about the museum but all I can really say is I enjoyed it quite a bit. And there was a gift shop to boot. A great place to stop by, right at the interstate 75 so if you're heading North towards Detroit or South towards Cincinnati it is worth the stop. Price wise, it was worth the $10 (adult price). My daughter, if she were with me would have enjoyed this museum. While there I noticed a large group of kids come through... So a school trip here would be quite good. And south of here in Dayton is the US Air Force Museum, another museum which may have some of the rockets and space capsules, but it lacks the nice small feel that this museum has. You can spend a good hour at the least here to see everything.
The museum is focused primarily on Neil Armstrong and his involvement with the space program. Still, there is a strong representation of the significant men and women who played vital and integral roles in the US Space Program. Definitely worth the trip to Neil Armstrong's hometown.
