The VASC was a fun place to visit. There was a lot of history of flight, naval history and space exploration. There are many interactive exhibits especially for children.

Very mixed feelings. The "Langley Visitor Center" thing is misleading since you're not at or near NASA Langley. On the one hand, they have an impressive array of aircraft and spacecraft on display. Way more that you'd expect from such a small place. Yet they...More

Not sure this is how NASA wants to be represented. Many exhibits were either broken or under construction. My girls were in town and they wanted to do the MAXFLIGHT simulator which was not open. Pretty hefty price for such a small museum with not...More

2 Seniors + 2 Children = $69.00. Many interactive displays inoperable. An attendant for an activity said he'd been working since 10 am and the activity was now closed. It was now 2:30 pm. Many displays needed refurbishing, if not a good cleaning. And make...More

We went for the IMAX movie about aircraft carriers. Excellent job. Then a kindly docent gave us a virtually private tour of the exhibits. If you live in the area, buy a membership. There are several little restaurants across and down the street. Very pleasant...More

There are some good exhibits of aircraft. There is an IMAX theater. But, the most impressive thing is that many of the exhibits put engineering principles on display.
