This was a neat place to visit. We really enjoyed the Saturn V exhibit hall. We met one former employee that helped design the vehicle the astronauts used on the moon. (It had to be unfolded before use and there was a small replica at the exhibit that visitors can try to fold and unfold). We also talked to one... More

this is a wonderful place to spend a few hours. adults and children will have a blast. the history that is here is remarkable. their are a few rides, the space shot is not to be missed. I rode it 10 times once with a couple of kids. that was plenty for one day. the food has never impressed me... More

This is a great attraction to visit when in the Huntsville area. We arrived a couple hours before closing and there weren't any crowds. The simulators were fun and the exhibits were interesting and informative.

Even though we were far from being acclimated to the weather in Alabama, we found this attraction absolutely WONDERFUL! Standing next to the rockets, I felt like an ant!

This is an amazing place. We've visited the Space and Rocket Center quite a number of times over the years and have never been disappointed. Lots of interesting displays, interactive opportunities for kids and family members. It's well worth a visit.

I haven't the words to express the feeling you get when you look at something someone designed to go into space, that went into space, that came back from space and you are actually looking at it. There are interactive simulators, exhibits, rides and a cafe and a paved path leading to rockets and other aircraft. We saw the IMAX... More

I have not been able to communicate with my son for the entire week he was at this camp. When I finally talked to him he said that this camp does not allow time for the children to call their parents. They also have no adult supervision in the dorms at night so I was not able to speak with... More
