We took our 4 boys (9,7,6,5) for 2.5 hours. We got the scavenger hunt at the welcome desk and had a blast. The planes and displays were amazing. My boys LOVED it!

No there were no discounts, but free admission when a lot of museum charge both parking and admission it well worth the parking fee.

Parking I believe is 15 dollars that you pay for inside the museum but museum is free of charge. So basically it’s 15dollars for the day whatever way you look at it. Plenty of parking provided.
