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."

"World Class Museum"

"This was my second trip to Stafford Air & Space Museum. The collection of NASA items and exhibits is really amazing. You would expect some things from Gen. Stafford's missions, but there was so much more. If you live in Oklahoma or traveling through via I-40, you should plan a stop. They are in the process of expanding the museum, but no real impact on the current exhibits."
