Description

Walk through a tornado, experiment with water pumps and surround yourself in a giant bubble. Watch in wonder as exotic butterflies float by in the Magic Wings Butterfly House and feel a chill go up your spine as you visit with un-caged giant orb spiders. Home to an actual Apollo Command Module and Neil Armstrong's space suit, this museum makes the history of space travel come to life.
