Friendly people and a free cup of coffee make this a welcoming place. BUT THERE'S MORE!!! A Lunar Module, Fred Haise's (Apollo 13) footprints, and more. Go to the INFINITY Space Center for more NASA artifacts. Everything is outside and FREE!

We will stop in again. You need to stop in for a personal account of what is new here. We visited many places of interest that has not come back. Stairs to nowhere. Driveways with no houses.
