Spent about two hours here with spouse on recent visit to Alamogordo. We love all things space exploration, NASA, etc and were not disappointed. Enjoyed the museum only; did not see any films at the nearby IMAX theatre. If you're a space junkie this is great! Interesting exhibits on early space, living/working in space, those who have made it happen (there are plaques of all inductees along the walls in the museum so you can read about the inventions and people who've made space exploration possible), and even a fun Space Shuttle landing simulator (free!) kids of all ages can try. Just please be considerate and let others waiting behind you have a try. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a family of 4 to finally get the picture and move on after they'd each tried it about four times (and no, your 3 year old wasn't even doing it-he was trying to go to Daddy).
If you're planning a visit to the SpacePort or want to see something different in the area, this is great. Nice gift shop with reasonably priced souvenirs, too.
