Hill Aerospace Museum, Hill AFB, Ogden, Utah. The larger aircraft are outside, but the fighter galleries are packed to the walls with amazingly restored aircraft.

USAF Missile Museum, Cape Canaveral, Florida. A lot of outdoor dispalys of numerous missiles. Forty years in the Florida weather ahs *not* been good to many of these...

New England Air Museum, Windsor Locks, CT. About half inside, holf outside. Some years ago the museum got *trashed* by a tornado; they've done a good job of getting back on their feet.

Belleview Park, Englewood, CO. Not a museum per se, just a Mace missile on some poles in a public park...

Launch Complex 34, site of the Apollo 1 disaster. Not sure if it's accessible to the general public (don't think so). Very quiet place, seemingly hell and gone away from everywhere.

Cool! I live not to far from there, actually. Don't wanna knock against Pima, but it's hard to beat a nice air-conditioned hangar :)

A tip: when you get a Google Map image you like and want to link to, simply hit the "link to this page" button just above the top right corner of the map image. It will give you a much shorter link to cut-and-paste.
