AOL Travel Editor’s Review

There was a time when, if the bad guys were going to bomb the United States, their primary target would have been the Strategic Air Command of Omaha. You can bet that Nikita Khrushchev could find Omaha, Nebraska on a world map. But when the Cold War ended, national security switched focus, and a museum dedicated to SAC and space exploration was built about halfway between Omaha and Lincoln. You’ll find approximately 30 unique military aircraft here, including a C-119 that you can spend the night in. A local boy who made it to the International Space Station shares an exhibit with artifacts from the Gemini program. There are lots of hands-on opportunities to inspire the astronaut in all of us.
