The Neil Armstrong Air & Space Museum is off the beaten path a bit. It's in Wapakoneta, which is about 45-50 miles north of Dayton.

Ohio has produced 23 astronauts, and as this museum suggests, Ohioans are proud of this fact and also that Dayton is the birthplace of aviation. This museum explores both.

This museum has a lot of cool stuff to see, such as spacesuits, videos, a moon rock, space artifacts, simulators, and memorabilia from Neil Armstrong. There's also a room lined with mirrors that simulates the vastness of space.
