I had half day free in San Francisco, and decided to visit Nasa Ames Visitor Centre. It's a small place but has some good exhibits. The moon rock sample, mars model and ISS model are worth looking at, and also if interested they have plenty to read about the Kepler mission. It wasn't very crowded when I went (around 2pm on a weekday) which is good as you get time to look around at ease. They also have a small shop to buy NASA goodies.

Educational in general. Interesting exhibits include the Lunar rock, Space shuttle, older space suits and a video loop. All in all it is a quick walk through. Students will be definitely benefited. The Ames Team take good time to answer any question. Students came with a big questionnaire and the Ames Team explained in good detail.

Smaller NASA Site with some older but interesting exhibits we went on a Saturday when it is has more visitors but still room to look around without being too crowded.

The Gift shop was a little disappointing with a lot of empty shelves and what was there was a bit sparse I did manage to get one T-shirt.

It is one of rare places in Sillicone valley where tourists could get in touch with technology. Large parking is just next to the exhibition hall. We expected more modern approaches and or exhibits to display all the great projects NASA is working on.
