Space Shuttle Replica

This is a little late because it has now been replaced by a real space shuttle. I was hoping that when there was a real shuttle, that people would be able to "get on board" but that appears to not be the case. When I was a kid, I got to go on a WWII submarine and walk around, getting into the bunks, hitting the fire torpedo button, etc. This left a lasting impression that can't be replaced by simply looking at the outside. Really, does it matter if the space shuttle is a replica or the real thing if you only get to see the cover? Heck, they even took out the heart of the real one by removing her engines. I am gonna go watch Space Camp now.
