It's only a small museum, but totally worth a visit. Some very rare and interesting artefacts, giving a history of the early space program. Perfectly complements a visit to Kennedy Space Centre.

A mostly volunteer staff make this a great place to visit. Most of the volunteers have worked in the Space Industry, so you're really talking about veterans and pioneers. The exhibits are nice but could use funding. Good geek day!

Yes. It was free but they do ask for a donation. It is separate from the space center which is not open for the general public. Have to drive north to the NASA visitors center for public tours.
