The museum is located in Wapakoneta, Ohio at Exit 111 of I-75. It is an enjoyable place to visit. Admission is $5 for adults and $1.25 for children 6-12. They offer a AAA discount of 10%. Allow two to three hours for the visit. There are hands-on exhibits which should keep the children busy and interested. Be sure and see the movie that runs every half hour.

You know they have to be dedicated to the task after seeing the 'space food' they have to eat. Without the labels, you would not know what it was.
