This may by old news for some but this article in Florida Today: <br />http://www.floridatoday.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060318/LIFE/603180304/1007/NEWS02<br />mentions that the the free-admission museum will shut its doors at the end of May because of a lack of funding.<br /><br />This place is a treasure and needs our support to stay open. The exhibits are mostly donated by local old timers from the space program (maybe Shuttle Guy has stuff there?).<br /><br />I have been there several times and it is just brilliant. Go to their site, visit the museum and send them big $$$!<br /><br />Oh, just found an earlier article in Florida Today:<br />http://www.floridatoday.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060309/NEWS01/603090332/1007/NEWS02<br /><br />Here is their website, a bit out of date...<br />http://www.spacewalkoffame.com/index.html <br /><br />Here is another site with more up to date info and some pics of the museum<br />http://www.nbbd.com/godo/spacemuseum/<br />

G'Day, I am not sure if you all caught this but they have found a new, more affordable, home for the US Space Walk of Fame Museum, so it will stay open!<br /><br />http://www.floridatoday.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060605/NEWS01/606050324/1007/news02<br /><br />If you live near by or are going for RTF2, make sure you go along and support them, it is brilliant and important that the collection remains in the public domain.<br /><br />Cheers,<br /><br />Peter

Just before the last post showed up, I was going to point out that it should move to more tourist-rich location. The harsh truth is that if there isn't enough public interest to pay its bills it shouldn't exist. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>
