Since the additional of the Davidson Center, this is a great place to visit. Great exhibits--explanations and facts. Trying to bring in more special exhibits and events--some have been very good. I don't do the "rides', such as Moon Shot, but it is a favorite...More

We were on the 2 day trip from our home on our way to gulf shores and needed a fun place to stop and let the kids stretch their legs. We saw a billboard and decided to check this out. I’m so glad we did!...More

The regular exhibits on the history of space exploration are worth seeing themselves. But the special exhibits are outstanding. The Thursday Night Beer Garden (Bier Garten) is a great venue for families or after work socializing. Just head for the big rocket!

What an amazing place filled with so much history. I highly recommend it anyone - young or old. Recommend you carve out a full day to capture as much as you can.

Wonderful display of a very special time in American History. The center layout, information and equipment displays, and docent talks still make one amazed at our Space accomplishments. All would enjoy.

We attended the 2017 New Year's Eve party at the Space and Rocket Center. What a treat it was to dance the night away with Space Exploration and Travel memorabilia all around us!

Interesting place. I enjoyed all of the displays. I have been to Kennedy Space Center as well as Johnson Space Center. This one was well put together, but I felt this wasn't as engaging as the others. I felt like I was in a walking...More

We spent the day here with a large family group (15 people ages 3-77) and had a blast. It could easily take 2-3 days to see/read everything. There were lots of interactive exhibits to keep kids entertained. It is mostly a self guided tour but...More
