Very interesting place to visit with lots of very interesting displays and interactive things for kids. Great for kids who want to see some actual space rockets. Careful with the "Mars Grill" - salad bar is ok, cheeseburger is $8 and equivalent of a McDonalds...More

Lots of space stuff to see. Cost of $52 for a couple seems awfully steep for what is about a three hour event. Great hands on for kids. Not busy but way too many staff standing around plus the volunteers.More

The rocket center has something for everyone. I thought I would be bored when I went with my husband and son, but there's a lot of history there too, which I really liked. Of course my son and husband loved all the technology and rockets!

This was better than I ever thought. The exhibits are great and well done. It takes a person through the entire space program. If a person has questions there are a lot of people (former engineers on the programs) walking around to guide you through...More
