Virginia Air and Space Center Hampton, Virginia
We've been the Air and Space center twice and neither time did we take photos. The second time we went, it was to obtain the autograph of Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek) and see the nice Star Trek exhibit they had. The museum houses a lot of stuff from weather, to air and space craft and they have a nice interactive kids center. There is a small place to eat/drink, restrooms, water fountains and an IMAX theatre which we saw a movie about a space voyage. They've show current films as well, such as Harry Potter and also Star Wars. I believe there is also a planetarium. I believe we went to it the first time; and that is about a 30 minute narrative which shows space and stars on the domed ceiling. Very nice. There is a nice gift shop as well and outside the museum is the Hampton Carousel, which I haven't gone to yet. If I do, I'll post the photos here.
