There’s a lot here. Most of it not worth seeing. You would come here to see the space shuttle Endeavour which is housed in its own building. Each of the four remaining shuttles are positioned differently. With Endeavour it sits on stilts above you so...More

This is the best space museum I have been to. It has a lot of cool things such as our weight on other planets, Space objects, etc.

The best part is spending 20 - 40 minutes having a conversation with the volunteering folks who ACTUALLY worked in the Shuttle Program. Really knowledgable staffs and an excellent tribute to American ingenuity.

We visited specifically to see the Endeavour Space Shuttle that is housed in the pavilion. The Endeavour is enormous – definitely worth seeing up close and personal. This museum is free but there is a small fee to view the Endeavour ($2) – well worth...More

Having watched the shuttles from conception to their final demise, throughout my life it only seemed right to visit this amazing machine when I had chance. It was an breathtaking experience, to be so close to something that has been so far away. If you...More
