Wings Over the Rockies is an air and space museum in an historic World War II-era hangar built in 1939. The museum and hangar are located on the former Lowry Air Force Base. Exhibits cover the years from World War I up through the space age, and include such items as an Apollo Command Module replica used by NASA to train astronauts for the Apollo moon missions. Allow two to three hours to see everything. Check for upcoming Cockpit Demo Days, when kids of all ages can climb inside select aircraft to get a pilot's view of instruments and controls. There's no café at the museum but there are several casual restaurants in the neighborhood.
