Most of this museum is under construction. However, there are several displays which make it worth the visit. Armstrong’s space suite, friendship 7 capsule, Gemini capsule, lunar lander, spirit of st Louise, and a full size shuttle engine are all on display and awe inspiring.

Only one entrance is currently open - lined wrapped around the building when we arrived but actually move quite quickly - we were inside in about 15 minutes. Half of the exhibits are gone during renovation.

We had a great time in here. Went in the morning before it got busy. Enjoyed the IMAX Aircraft Carrier: Guardians of the Sea in 3D. Well worth it.

First I want to say this is my favorite museum in the entire world. Love the history it shows, but it's currently under construction which makes the place a mess. I'll go back when the construction is completed!

Yes, it does. May be new since the others were there, but there was a Concorde about 6 months ago when I was there.
