This gem of a destination is well worth the price of admission and your time. The exhibits are both informative and entertaining with lots of opportunities to push buttons and make things go "bing". Actual planes and space craft are crammed into the centre but...More

I'm not sure, I've never seen any dogs in the museum or any signs pertaining to that either. Try contacting them at 1-757-727-0900.
