Fodor's Review

New England's only air-and-space center offers a full day of activities that are mostly focused on the heavens. See yourself in infrared light, learn about lunar spacecraft, examine a replica of the Mercury-Redstone rocket, or experience what it's like to travel in space. You can even try your hand at being a television weather announcer. There's more, including a café and gift shop.
