If you haven’t been here, it’s an excellent place to see and take pictures of rockets and things. There is one level in the museum under construction. The museum has plenty of artifacts and informations to offer. The whole family can suit up as an astronaut for a photo shoot. The dome screen at the “IMAX” theater has varieties of films to watch that are awesome. It’s better than wearing a 3D glasses. If the admission to the museum and/or “IMAX” film is/are too pricey, then the free admission to outside has plenty of interesting to see.

My husband and I, along with our Airman son, visited this museums this weekend. It was very informative and interesting. They are doing some renovation, but it's not very intrusive. We visited the museum and went to the planetarium. We were very delighted when the nice ladies at the desk where you pay, informed us that the museum was free from Memorial day to Labor day for service men and women and their families.
The museum also have a couple interactive displays along with a very cute photo op complete with costumes.

In all fairness, it looked like this museum was in process of a remodel, however, after visiting the outstanding missile museum at White Sands, I expected more.

There were a few nice exhibits, particularly the Gene Roddenberry section, but all in all, we blew through it pretty quick.

We did not go to the IMAX so have no opinion on that.

Lynn and I and friends recently toured the New Mexico Museum of Space History. A friend from Las Cruces suggested that this museum was a must see while in the Central New Mexico area. Admission was $7.00 each for Seniors and Military. The museum discovers just about everything about space exploration and has a gallery which includes photos of all of the Astronauts and a caption about their impact on the space industry. Actual and replica Missiles and rockets abound, both inside and outside. The location of the museum is convenient, but high on a mountain and offers great views of the space gear with the surrounding mountains and terrain in the background. It’s a great place for photographers.

All sorts of fun displays. Star Trek images and history was a nice surprise. We definitely enjoyed our visit here. The elevators were under construction but even still they did a good job of getting everyone where they wanted to go when the wanted to get there. Lots of interactive displays. Very cool historical info.
