"Great Informational Family Stop"

I thoroughly enjoyed our family visit. It was very informational. If you like history and are interested space related information this is a great place to check out.
I have a 1 year old and he absolutely loved all the shiny exhibits and the contraptions  hanging from the ceilings. He also enjoyed the intractable pieces in the  halfway mark between the 3rd and 4th floors. And the dress up section on the last floor. Even though it isn't completely toddler friendly I got nothing but smiles and giggles from him.

"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.
