This park has a small indoor area which is interesting but the outdoor area is awesome for folks interested in military airplanes. I'm not into planes and I found it fascinating.

Interesting collection of military jet aircraft and rockets, in particular interesting due to its connection to Langley AFB and the early history of US space programs at Langley.
