Visited this place for the first time in 20 yrs. It was awesome. It's worth the money. Educational, interactive, movies, rides, and food. Something for everyone. So if you are in the area definitely check it out.

Great day out for science lovers but they have almost price themselves out of the range of the average family. You can go to the Vatican Museum in Rome cheaper than the Space & Rocket Center.
