Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum

The museum displays a great collection of aircraft and space memorabilia inside an extremely large hangar. There are some interactive exhibits, and a couple flight simulators round it all out. Also, the ice cream stand next door has a rocket on it! Recommended for flight and history buffs.
