An enjoyable experience. Lot's of interesting displays. Great for the space history buff. If you are one I would definitely recommend it. The staff was great and gave me free admission since I went right before closing and they didn't rush me. It's not the most profound museum but I think everyone can appreciate something from there. Definitely check it out if you visit Alamagordo.

The museum was well stocked and interesting. I loved their displays on the "city of tomorrow" as envisioned by people in the past. Cool stuff. The only downside was the tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and kept it interesting, but he also kept interjecting his politics in the commentary, which I didn't appreciate. Eventually, it got annoying enough that I left the pack and finished the museum on my own.

Random pieces of space memorabilia that you could purchase on ebay such as a polo shirt worn by an astronaut in space.... The displays outside are the best thing this place has to offer so don't bother wasting your money on admission to see some faded photos and outdated displays that look like a middle schooler's diorama
