Really curious if the space shuttle launch simulators are in a museum somewhere for visitors to see and learn more about? Also curious if maybe there is a technical book on those simulators?
The three Shuttle Mission Simulator training bases are, or will "soon" be, in museums. However, they are a shadow of their operational selves.
The Fixed Base is in the Stafford Museum in Oklahoma. This is the only one currently visible to the public.

The Motion Base, after being in durance vile at Texas A&M University for 10 years, is being returned to Houston and will be displayed at the Lone Star Flight Museum later this year.
The Guidance and Navigation Simulator was given to a small museum in Florida which went out of business before ever placing the simulator on display. It has recently been delivered to the Pima Air and Space Museum. However, the crew station was heavily modified for use in a motion picture.
A couple of old manuals are available online
