Unexpected amazing museum, larger than expected!
"What an unexpected gem of a museum in Weatherford, Oklahoma. Not only does the museum include lots of displays and information about the museum's namesake, astronaut Thomas Stafford, it has lots of original displays about flight, the history of flight and the space program in general. If you have any interest in aviation at all, this is worth a visit, even if you need to go out of your way to get here. If you happen to be on Interstate 40 traveling through Weatherford, it is a must see in my opinion."

Fantastic Museum of Human Accomplishment!
"As a space buff from the time I was a kid, this place is second only to visiting Canaveral in Florida. We only had about 1/2-hour to breeze through before closing. I could have used half-a-day. Excellent exhibits, model work, stories preserved in placards, actual hardware and info about Gen. Stafford himself kept me captivated. If the subject interests you, make sure you allow the TIME to see everything!"

"This place is amazing!"
"We love air and space history and were pleasantly surprised at how many full sized replica and actual(!) artifacts are here. The Smithsonian auxiliary status was not given, it was earned! You need to see it for yourself."
