Thanks for visiting! We are currently in the process of restoring many of our exhibits, starting with our signage. We're glad you enjoyed the museum overall.

We really had a good time... myself, my husband, son (9) and daughter (6). We went on a Sunday and it was not crowded at all. We took the bus tour to Red Stone. I am so glad we did. It was very informative.

The space center is very large for sure! There is a lot to see but I did not find it to be that interesting. The IMAX was great! I think if you are into space stuff then you would enjoy it more.
