A couple of hours. If the weather was nicer, and the hall not full of tradies, then I might have stayed another hour. The 'program' recommends a day! I did skip a lot of the displays in the first, entry museum and I didn't read every panel in the main hall. I'd say no more than half a day. There is a big parking lot and you access the place directly off I 565 for anyone driving there. Its about 15 mins from the airport, again, along I565 and 15-20 mins further to downtown Huntsville.How long did you spend at the centre?
I got an Uber from the hotel to the airport, and arrived in plenty of time. The ride was there (CRJ900), but no Admiral's Club, of course

We boarded on time and it was about 80 mins to DFW, where i'd connect for the flight to Mexico City. Another smooth ride across the US mid-west.

1-2 in J and I was back in 2A; same snacks and drinks service as on the way over.

We arrived at terminal B, so it was a quick Skylink ride to Terminal D and the Flagship Lounge for lunch. I think this is one of my favourite lounges outside of Australia. The lunch buffet spread was very good and a good selection of booze - except no tonic water to go with the gin. GThe attendants kept directing me to the (plain) water cabinet ... oh well.

The ride to Mexico City was leaving from Terminal D, then B and finally A, with a delayed in-bound. Annoyingly, the AA app and the gate agent kept insisting that there would be no delay, even though the inbound was scheduled to arrive when we were due to board. .Everything updated when we started boarding, 30 mins late.

I poured just a Bombay Sapphire but absent any tonic, I left it on the bench.No Tonic Water surely this is an aberration ? I note the Aviation Gin at the bar. Have you tried it? I'm a fan although probably not without Tonic Water.
Yes, its a lot more pleasant to walk around than I expected - broad footpaths (in the touristy areas), not as much traffic jamming and honking etc. If only my bod was up to a bit more getting around!!Heh, seeing your photos and thinking 'I've been there, I've been there!' How lovely is Mexico City though? I hope you continue to enjoy it
Oh, dear. I eventually found the ticket office and bought a ticket to the very top of the dome. Or so I thought. I was directed underground, which turns out to be an elaborate museum about the Mexican Revolution and the history of the domed structure. It was to be a much longer visit than I planned.You can see there is an elevator going up into the dome. That was for me!!
