Doesn't hold candle to cape Kennedy. Exhibits don't seem to have a continuity. Army misske and Saturn v exhibits are very good.

We had the best time at the Space & Rocket center. It's been years since we had been there and it has changed for the better. Definitely a place to spend several hours.

Good sized museum, not overwhelming. The best part was the 10 am tour we took which gave an excellent overview of the Saturn rockets. Made the information come alive.

Something for everyone. Guides are very knowledgeable on both the exhibits and the history. See planes, rockets, a moon rock, 3D movies and more. There's hours of entertainment both inside and out. Ride a simulator too.

great way to get an understanding of the space program that is now 50 years since the moon landing. Many people who worked on the project are now guides and can give a great insight

Hi Erin! Space Camp is definitely still in operation! Since 1982, we've provided programs for children and adults. Thank you so much for visiting, and perhaps there will be a camp in your future!

Sorry, I don't remember for sure, but would think the ticket would be good all day on the day of purchase for a return to the park.
