Had a great time here. Our student tour guide’s nose piercings were a little distracting, but what I was able to absorb between the distractions of her specially placed jewelry, she did a very good job. I would really recommend taking their tour if your...More

We navigated this small museum with our own personal tour guide. We got to do lots of fun things like practice Morse code and broadcast the weather on tv. This museum is fun for anyone regardless of your level of knowledge of meteorology.

Being a commercial airline pilot for over 30 years, and an amateur radio operator for 41 years, I found the different displays interesting on many different levels. There are old hybrid radar consoles that contain integrated circuits, but yet they are wired point to point...More

The tour guides are very knowledgeable - both were retired forecasters with NOAA - and spent time to answer questions. The museum is currently small, but has room to grow. GO VISIT.

This museum is a work-in-progress, so expect to see some things unfinished or being created. All admission fees are going toward enhancing and improving the museum. It is money well spent. We received a guided tour by an incredibly knowledgeable NWS employee who made me...More

The only weather museum in the nation certainly did not disappoint! The tour was informative, interesting, relatively short, but most of all fun! They have an impressive array of exhibits ranging from nearly century-old equipment, to the most cutting edge emerging technologies! It was really...More
