Difficult to get to, but worth the trouble. Lot of rare aircraft, from research to pleasure flying, to a DC-9. The Apollo 12 capsule is awesome! Lots of stuff for kids, young adults. Only complaint, wish some aircraft were more observable.....mainly the F-104 and P-39.

I don't remember the entry price, but 1 IMAX is included in every admission which was a nice surprise.

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.
