Portal of the Folded Wing.

Portal of the Folded Wing, Space Shuttle Memorial

Aviation museum part only opens 1 day a month -- call for current schedule. Park at front for a nice but long walk and view of large fountain or drive right up to the shuttle. The architecture is a real star of this stop -- it's like something out of Europe.
