Like it's counterpart in DC, this museum has so much to view. Plan to come early and have around 2 to 3 hours min. The space crafts are amazing to see in person.

This was one of the best museums I have been to. Their collection of aircraft is extensive and is worth the drive out of DC to experience this.

It would be a minimum of $30-40 one way. Traffic depends on day. It can take 40-60 minutes on a good day.
