Great collection of information related to the development of the Saturn V rocket. IMAX also shows movies with a curved screen.

So that may seem like a bold title, but in my honest opinion having visited the Space an Rocket center numerous times and having visited the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum a number of times I feel confident that it is true. If you can avoid the ride attractions and spend some time actually looking and reading all of the... More

So much more than we expected! Something there for all ages, to learn and to do! We only had the afternoon, and although we experienced several displays and the Imax we will return. There is so much to see and experience.

It is still worthy to pay a visit but I was a bit disappointed with the state of the park. The facility is old fashioned and the exhibition also, the only good is for the Saturn V. The Mars-Grill is expensive and really bad quality food!

I attended Space Camp for Adults and found it surprisingly interesting. I expected a lot of silly kid-age stuff, but it was all appropriate for adults of any age. Our adult group was about a dozen of various ages and backgrounds (a graphic artist, a couple of doctors, an engineer, a loan officer) and we all loved the experience. I... More

Awesome displays. Lots to see. The rocket garden is to cool. SR71 plane. Apollo capsules. Skylar trainer. All kinds of space related items to see. Fun for geeks of all ages. Or if you just like things that fly.

We stopped here on our way through Hunstville, spent about 3 hours enjoying all of the exhibits. Probably could have stayed longer, we didn't have time to see any of the movies or spend much time outside. Definitely recommend if you are at all interested in space. Would be a great place to take the kids.

Huntsville Space Center: there’s a lot to see. If you get into what’s on display, this can easily be well over three hours, not including the movies. Overall 5/5. Value 5/5.

I should start off by saying I live minutes away from Kennedy Space Center and have visited there many times. With that in mind I wanted to see what the US Space and Rocket Center had to offer. I have to say I had a great time visiting the center and spent the better part of 4-5 hours there. Although... More

HUGE exhibit areas. Everything about the space program is on display. IMAX theater shows space related films. Exhibits are both indoors and outdoors. Plan to spend the better part of a full day. Highly recommend the additional tour by bus of the armory. Great for space minded children. There were several school sponsored tours going on the day I was... More
