Neil Armstrong Air & Space Museum - 2002
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.
