Fascinating, The New Mexico Museum of Space History is a portal to the beginning of America's space program, through the present.

I have been here twice, and plan more visits to enjoy all that is offered. An IMAX is on the premises, a hiking trail ambles into the desert, and one has an incredible view into the valley that harbors White Sands National Monument and Holloman Air Force Base.

Treat yourself--visit this wonderful museum!
