Space Museums Map

Share

Space Map Update!

So last week I toyed around with Google Maps, and put together a visual view of all the NASA Facilities in the United States.

This week, I have researched and added all the major American space museums, or aviation museums where space flight is included in various public exhibits. Also included are space related novelties such as the John Glenn historic site, Space Walk of Fame, and tourist centers attached to NASA Space Centers.



Like any Google Map, you can view the landmarks with the Basic map default, labeled Terrain feature and/or Satellite View.

The second batch includes:
ALABAMA (Huntsville): US Space & Rocket Center
CALIFORNIA (San Diego): San Diego Air & Space Museum
CALIFORNIA (Downey): Columbia Memorial Space Center
COLORADO (Denver): Wings Over The Rockies
FLORIDA (Patrick AFB): Air Force Space & Missile Museum
FLORIDA (Cape Canaveral): Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex
FLORIDA (Pensacola): National Aviation Museum
FLORIDA (Titusville): Space Walk of Fame
GEORGIA (Columbus): Coca-Cola Space Science Center
INDIANA (Mishawaka): P-H-M Air/Space Museum
KANSAS (Hutchinson): Cosmosphere & Space Center
MICHIGAN (Frankenmuth): Military & Space Museum
MICHIGAN (Kalamazoo): Air*Zoo
MISSOURI (St. Louis): Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum
NEBRASKA (Ashland): Strategic Air & Space Museum
NEW HAMPSHIRE (Concord): McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center
NEW MEXICO (Alamogordo): Museum of Space History
NEW YORK (Long Island): Cradle of Aviation Museum
NEW YORK (NYC): Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
OHIO (Wapakoneta): Armstrong Air & Space Museum
OHIO (Cleveland): International Women's Air & Space Museum
OHIO (New Concord): John Glenn Historic Site
OKLAHOMA (Weatherford): Stafford Air & Space Museum
OKLAHOMA (Tulsa): Tulsa Air & Space Museum
PENNSYLVANIA (Philadelphia): The Franklin Institute
TEXAS (Dallas): Frontiers of Flight Museum
TEXAS (Houston): Space Center Houston
VIRGINIA (Hampton): Virginia Air & Space Center
WASHINGTON DC (Smithsonian): National Air & Space Museum
WASHINGTON (Seattle): The Museum of Flight
WISCONSIN (Sparta): Deke Slayton Space & Bike Museum

And no, that last one is not a typo... there really is a Deke Slayton Space AND BICYCLE museum! Click on each for a specific address or web site.

Great job, Pillownaut! I now have two day trips to make in Michigan that I confess I was previously unaware of.
I can plug the Armstrong Air & Space Museum in Ohio. It's not a big museum, but they do have a Gemini capsule and a bunch of other authentic items. It's definitely worth the visit, and can easily be combined with other sites in Ohio as it's right off a major freeway.
