My daughter attended their Space Camp. When we drove up to the Space Center, she saw all of the rockets and instantly became excited. This is a really cool place to take the entire family. The food is overpriced, but that’s pretty typical.

The IMAX theatre is worth the visit. Our teens are still talking about all of the facts they learned from watching the movie. The museum overall is amazing. We got to see moon rocks and actual space shuttles.

Every exhibit included hands-on experiences. My grandson had a fantastic time, pushing buttons, creating things, making science. The two outdoor rides were scary (for me who didn't go) and thrilling for him (who did). One shoots the riders straight up a tower and then drops...More
