We stopped on a Friday morning which happened to be Space Camp graduation day, so there were lots of people. We really didn't have to wait in any lines and the exhibits were well marked. A tip during hot days--go outside and visit the static...More

I did the Redstone Arsenal and museum combo. The big building with the Saturn rocket was amazing and the timeline added a historic element to the science. There are some cool artifacts here. The tour guide was awesome and really knew his stuff.

To me this is nearly 2 separate centers. The newer building that houses the Saturn V is nearly identical to the same building at KSC and is very well done. Mostly up to date, lots of artifacts, well labeled and interesting. Then you have the...More

The main floor was being changed out for different theme. So half of the museum was missing! The website did not mention it nor did the staff when I called for info.

We drove by on our way to Florida and decided to drive back and tour on our way home. Admission price is very high as the outdoor exhibits all seem to need refurbished. Saturn V exhibit is very nice. Signage to get around the grounds/exhibition...More

The main hall Saturn V, Skylab and Apollo 16 displays are the highlights. Everything is well labelled and I found it fascinating. Other displays are more geared to kids as this is also Space Camp. The outside rocket and Shuttle displays are a bit weathered...More

I was really looking forward to visiting this attraction. I had been to Huntsville on numerous occasions but never had time to make the trip. I was really disappointed at the conclusion of the experience. The admission price of $25 is exorbitant. I was unwilling...More

I have always enjoyed going here. The older part of the museum is getting a bit tired and dated. The new area, with the Saturn V, is amazing. If you are a space, aviation, or engineering 'nerd', the Space & Rocket Center needs to be...More

I was with my husband, who grew up here, so he read every. Single. Display. We spent 2.5 - 3 hours. It was raining, so we didn't spend much time outside at those displays.

I would call them, as I think I remember something for visitors from other countries. There is only English on displays.
