It was a nice day to invite the museum on a hot sunny day in Albuquerque. We found the museum very informative and educational. We were disappointed that the film at the facility was not working in which we would of enjoyed.

We visited this past fall and it was more than we ever expected! The events from the morning launches to the evening "glows" were so much for us to do and take in. We loved watching them inflate in the early morning and then launch....More
