I truly enjoyed the sights of this Smithsonian affiliate. How humbling to stand at the base of a Saturn V rocket. From the mild enthusiasts to the hard core space junkie there is truly something for everyone here.

This is a great place to explore and learn about the space program. There are rides/ attractions suitable for all ages. My son loves the Mars themed climbing wall. Be sure to stick around for an IMAX film.

Join your local Museum program to get in free. This is an awesome experience. Enjoy it for free. Always worth the price. Just enough to fill a few hours. Be sure to enjoy an IMAX presentation.
