Alamogordo - Museum of Space History

Sadly, I would not recommend this museum to anybody. It is not bad, but there are many much better ones elsewhere (e.g. in San Diego and in Washington).

The two (small) highlights of our visit there were:
1) playing with sound enhancer located in the outdoor space park
2) trying to land a space shuttle using a simulator... Anil was much better at it than I was, but still, neither of us should really be an astronaut...

Here are a few pics:

Trinity Site can be visited only on one specific day during the year, so I doubt that I will ever make it there. This will have to suffice:
