Apollo 12 Capsule, Other Space Stuff

Majority of things are not working or closed, IMAX is cool. It's more of a fake NASA plane museum. If you're in town, worth a stop, but for cost keep driving.

Apollo 12 Capsule - VA Air And Space Center

For any space lover or anyone just curious about the worlds afar. Lots of interactive games, puzzles, a few rides, and the option to see an IMAX movie. A small food court is next to the theater if little ones get hungry! Option is available to include a movie with admission. Ride tickets also available at the admission desk. ( Carousel outside the building and can be included with ride tickets)

Aside from typical mainstream kid activities, the museum has some authentic items, including the command module from Apollo 12.
