SPACE AGE MUSEUM
Here is a great site dedicated to America's deep seated longing from the past to explore space. This museum displays artifacts from American pop culture's obsession with space travel (especially the 1950's) with some campy, kitschy, and cool artifacts. It also showcases artwork, sculptures, toys, movies, etc. from around the world with one thing in common: the space age. What ever happened to that innocent childhood American dream from a bygone era to conquer space? I miss it, and I wish it would come back. I guess we will just have to visit The Space Age Museum in the meantime....click here. Check out the flying saucer ashtrays. They're my favorite.
