they don't call this the world's largest space and rocket center for nothing. now if it's only aircraft your interested in, maybe this is not the best place, but for all things related to space and rockets, there's nothing better. my father-in-law could not believe it. he was blown away and you will be too!!! this is a must see for all space lovers.

as you can tell by the name this place is'nt as much about avation as it is rockets. They have a Saturn V rocket on display inside and many many other rockets though out the part. it also has 2 different buildings full of exibits. Its a pretty good time and you could probly spend half a day there. plus Active duty military get in free, and since my girl was with me she didnt pay either. I would also recomend going to Annisont Arsonal which is right next to it. Just drive around and explore and you can see all kinds of rockets missles and even helicoptors towards the back. and they are all in good shae plus NASA has several rockets on static there too. between the two of them and the Harmony safari i had a great trip. Check um all out.

Sir: Your A-12 Blackbird represented as a NASA SR-71 is a fraud and a disgrace. This is a CIA A-12. I flew this aircraft during the flight testing and operationally. It the only Blackbird to take a sam hit,and as the last one to leave Okinawa for retirement,crossed the Pacific in 4:30 ,an unofficial record that may stand forever.
Display it as what it is or give to someone that will.

I am the author of both "A-12 Declassified" and "The Archangel and the OXCART". No where in my research have I EVER found an A-12 that flew for NASA. You need to make a serious change here guys and give the A-12 her rightful name and place. She never flew for NASA! Get her true markings from the USAF museum at WPAFB. You're not supposed to change aircraft markings to support your false history. Make it right! This is a disgrace!

I am president of Roadrunners Internationale, an organization of the personnel who built and flew the CIA's A-12 at Area 51 and Kadena. A-12 Article 127, SN: 60-6930 was one of three A-12s flown operational by the CIA over Vietnam and North Korea. Only 2 returned home, the A-12 at Huntsville and Article 131 at Birmingham. The 3rd plane was lost along with its pilot Jack Weeks during Operation BLACK SHIELD. You insult this rare plane that flew combat misssions by putting NASA stickers on it and identifying it as a SR-71. For more details see: http://roadrunnersinternationale.com/article127.html

The Saturn V - Apollo displayed in the vertical position are outstanding. This is mostly a space exploration museum with many indoor and outdoor displays, and an I-Max movie theater.

STEVEN W. IS MISTAKEN THE AIRCRAFT IN QUESTION
IS NOT AN A-10, BUT AN A-12. THE A-12 PICTURED
HAS FALSE NASA MARKINGS. NASA HAS NEVER HAD OR
FLOWN AN A-12 BLACKBIRD, BUT THE TAIL NUMBERS
#60-6930 ARE CORRECT.

A Fun Place to take the Kids. Space Camp is Next door. The "SR-71" out front is a "A-10".
Lots of outdoor exibits so go when it is warm.
Lots of Rockets on display.
Take the bus tour.
