A well set out exhibition giving a very good idea of the International Space Station, showing and explaining rockets and their technology with a life-sized mockup of the Apollo Lunar Landing as an added bonus. Well worth the visit.

A true-sized moon landing capsule, the donated spacesuit of astronaut André Kuipers, two life-sized sections of the International space station and a multitude of photographs of the universe are a feast for those interested in experiencing space on a closer level.

Nice museum with a lot to do and see. Bigger than I expected. Not just for kids. Only down point is that I missed a clear overall story. All the displays and parts were nice but how do they fit together.
