Worth the stop considering it's free! Some cool plaques and whatnots. Mostly everything is a copy or simulation of the real stuff. Lots of interactive displays. Good for kids. Wouldn't want to have paid for it, but it kills an hour.

We stopped by here, on Labor Day weekend and could not have been happier. This place is very interactive. It's not a "no no, don't touch that!" Kind of place. There are lots of displays and touch screens for kids to touch and learn. When...More

We stopped by while in town, and although it's quite small there are a few things to see and learn: our total stay was only about 20 minutes. After that we went to the gift shop which was excellent. Lots of NASA branded hats and...More

Hubs and I have been to obscure places before but this was probably one of the most boring places I've been. It wasn't up to par with other NASA museums I've been to by any means. Not worth the traffic we sat in getting here.

Small but nicely arranged space exhibits. The solar room shows the surface of the Sun popping and blazing. Outside is the rocket garden and the Astrobiology walk were cool. The staff were pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable.

We visited this facility with our son expecting an experience similar to those we have enjoyed at Cape Canaveral and Houston complexes of Nasa. However, this is a very disappointing experience. The visitor centre itself has a few model exhibits of the Hubble and the...More

This is a nice, small NASA visitors center. But it still worth the trip. You will not need more than one hour. I would not go a great distance out of the way, but if it near where you are, it is definitely worth the...More

Goddard Space center is a remarkable place to visit. DJ was an incredibly enthusiastic and entertaining guide. He spoke a mile a minute but his info was clear and very interesting. We saw the James Webb telescope at the end of construction. It was about...More

Small museum and gift store. Moon rock. Hubble telescope. Mercury capsule. Apollo capsule. Some weather rockets. Other stuff about outer space. Not an anchor destination unless astronomy or space exploration is your bag. Am glad it is available for young people to get a glimpse...More

We really enjoyed our visit here. One quick point: We first stopped at the Goddard Space Flight Center which was the wrong location and went to the Visitor Center, which is a short drive away. The "science on a sphere" exhibit in the back, auditorium...More
