"One of my favorite indoor visits on our road trip to Utah." - Dan Vaught
On May 22, 2021, we stopped in at the Stafford Air and Space Museum, in Weatherford, OK. This was one of my favorite indoor visits on our road trip to Utah. The museum, named for NASA astronaut and Weatherford native Thomas P. Stafford, became a Smithsonian Affiliate in June 2010. The museum features exhibits about aviation, space exploration, and rocketry, and a collection of over 20 historic aircraft. Displays include artifacts from the Space Shuttle program, Hubble Space Telescope, and the Mir Space Station, a Moon rock, Stafford's Apollo 10 spacesuit, the Gemini 6A spacecraft, a Titan II missile, and a Mark 6 re-entry vehicle.

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!"
