Nice. Even before this it was a cool little museum packed with all kinds of stuff I’d never seen including Bay Area relevant.

This is a well-kept secret—take the kids to hit golf balls on the NASA driving range (stop by the clubhouse to buy some NASA logo golf balls and fries), visit the Moffett Museum and the Space Bar for hamburgers (have they started making the burgers again? they closed during the pandemic—so good and best veggie burgers because of the add ons), don’t forget the visitors center and gift shop.
