I cannot express how much fun the space center is. There is so much to see and learn. The children can even become certified astronauts. There is a moon rock wall. The space rockets are humongous. You are able to take photos with the rocket launch engines, which are so big.

Was so much to see and the exhibits were awesome! Well worth seeing for adults and kids. Our teenagers were skeptical until we were inside and then they became engaged and interested. Got them off their phones and being wowed! The were several exhibit shows given by staff that were full of of information about space travel. Most was inside in the ac but you also had actual and space shuttle outside to see. Also a cafeteria inside to make a day of it onsite.

This was my second visit. We enjoyed the day with one exception. The only outdoor tour was the red tram which did not tour the command center. We came for the day thinking the other tram focused living on the Mars expedition. That was disappointing. The indoor Mars expedition was very good!
