    Try to go early. It gets pretty packed in the afternoon. Great exhibits. My faves were Exploring the Planets, Amelia Earhart, and the one w/ the ISS.

    The Planetarium is cool the kids loved it.

    Take you time. This museum is jam packed with amazing aircraft and artifacts.

    Tip: You're really hungry, but McD inside of the building looks packed with tourists? No worries, just get outside and find their food truck (right from main entrance).The only catch is 3-items menu.

    For people not over-the-top in ♥️ with natural sciences, ✈️s and 🚀s, it's actually pretty dull. This is only interesting thing I've seen and that's only because it made history ( Apollo 11👇🏻)

    The planetarium shows are worth the cost, and the rest of the museum is free so why not? Great for a rainy day.

    Not accessible for the visually impaired. Everyone offered a Braille book but that does nothing. They need to get audio Tours that are accessible. The ones they do have are difficult/disappointing.

    You should definitely take a ride in the flight simulators. Very realistic! Not good if you get dizzy easily. You are doing barrel rolls and trying to shoot down enemy planes.
