Virgil I. Gus Grissom Memorial Museum Reviews & Ratings
Nice memorial! Just the right side for my kids to enjoy and not get bored with too much to look at. They loved the movie at the end of the tour and the small gift shop.
Well done & worth a visit to know about the early US space program & Gus Grissom. He was an average guy who aspired for more & followed his dream. See the movie & great artifacts.
Fascinating, learning about Gus Grissom's involvement with NASA. I missed the stairs that used to lead up to a landing or sorts, which overlooked the space capsule, though. The video was informative, and the gift shop nice.
My oldest daughter really enjoyed the museum and tribute to Gus Grissom. It was a nice educational experience for all my kiddos and myself.
Loving tribute to one of Indiana's greatest aeronautical heroes. Pioneer in space flight flying in both the Mercury and Gemini missions during the early days of NASA. Lost his life during early Apollo testing. This place does an excellent job of sharing his life's story with all people who visit this memorial.
