  • Stafford Air and Space Museum
    Commemorating America’s accomplished history in space travel and aviation, the Stafford Air & Space Museum houses more than 20 historic aircraft and several gravity-belittling exhibits, including an F-16 Fighting Falcon, a full-size replica of the Spirit of St. Louis, and a V-2 rocket engine](http://gr.pn/mET6EN). Visitors can glide through 40,000 square feet of exhibition space and examine replicas of early airplanes, two of which the Wright brothers famously designed after abandoning their initial design of an umbrella attached to three seagulls. Awe-inspiring NASA vehicles such as the Titan II rocket and the Gemini spacecraft serve as gargantuan reminders that humankind is no longer bound by the laws of gravity. The lunar curious can get an up-close look at a moon rock from the Apollo 17 space mission or inspect the full-scale replica of the Apollo program's command module.

  • Museum of Osteology
    In 1972, when most other 7-year-olds were building their baseball-card and bottle-cap collections, Jay Villemarette began collecting skulls. His lifetime hobby evolved into a full-time vocation in 1990 after he opened Skulls Unlimited, a one-of-a-kind bone-replica shop that earned the limelight on popular TV shows such as Dirty Jobs and Ripley's Believe It or Not!. By 2010, Jay's widespread success led him to establish the Museum of Osteology, which currently houses the largest privately held collection of osteological specimens in the world, with more than 300 skeletons and, most importantly, zero zombie sightings to date. Education abounds throughout the 7,000-square-foot space as visitors investigate rare species, skulls, and skeletons from all corners of the world. The form and function of the skeletal system weave a common thread through each of the museum's exhibits, which showcase topics such as adaptation, locomotion, and specific categories of animals, including marsupials, birds, and reptiles. After exploring displays and begging skeletons for their teeth-whitening regimen, interim osteologists can visit the gift shop, where souvenirs, toys, and replicas of museum models are available to start personal collections.
