You have to make the time to see the museum. We enjoyed everything about the trip. Can't tell enough people about this place. Go and I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

My favorite part about our visit was the interactive exhibits where you could land (or crash) the shuttle, dress up like an astronaut for pictures, etc. It was also interesting to read about the individuals who were in the hall of fame.

This was a good way to spend a couple hours. We enjoyed the National Parks movie at the IMAX, and then spent 2 hours in the museum. The exhibits seem very disorganized ... seem to ramble from one topic to another with no clear pattern...More

I'm a big fan of space travel. I was looking forward to an exciting history lesson of the United States and world space exploration. The entrance fee is $7, but for a 30 minute tour, it's not worth it.

Lots of information about the development of the space program and the people involved. A "don't miss" stop for a visit.

Spent a wonderful afternoon visiting the museum and Imax show. The museum was very interesting and the space show was spectacular. I would recommend this attraction whole-heartedly.
