The mission of the museum is to educate the people of New Mexico and our visitors from around the world in the history, science, and technology of space. The museum stresses the significant role that the state of New Mexico has played in the development of the U.S. Space Program through collecting, preserving, and interpreting significant artifacts relevant to the history of space.

"Full of Information"

We spent a couple of hours at the museum on our road trip out west. The museum is not flashy and has only a few interactive exhibits, so it is best suited to kids who can read and have an interest in ari and space (like my husband :) The museum is a ramp down, making it easy to navigate. The girls enjoyed it, but may not have gotten too much out of it. For the price, though, it was worth the stop.
