Interesting museum with a focus on interactive exhibits for children (although adults will find them entertaining). Helpful volunteer docents to provide information. Worth a visit.

This museum has a permanent exhibit as well as a changing one. It would be nice if it would change more often.

With a detailed and very well presented space exploration exhibition this museum was well worth an hour or so. It also tells the story of Idaho's local history in an interesting series of presentations. Just $10 to get in

Great opportunity to learn about the space program, satellites, astronauts, light rays, living conditions on space ships, planet travel and all the products that have developed because of space exploration, including cat scans.

I thought the space exhibition was lame at best. With all the technology available today I would have thought they could have done a better job. We were a party of seven, some children, we could of spent the money better elsewhere.

On the small side, but has a number of interesting and well designed exhibits, especially those focused on US space missions. Some interactive exhibits that are informative and entertaining. Several short but good videos.
