If you dreamed of enrolling in Space Camp as a kid, it's not too late to realize your childhood dream! Space Camp operates an adults-only version several times per year, and it's amazing. It's a three-day weekend full of shuttle simulations, model rocket launches, and meeting new people. Our group, Team Challenger, included folks from around the country ranging in... More

My 11 year-old son and I visited on a weekday and it was not very crowded. The collection of exhibits is amazing and unique. Where else can you see a Saturn 5 rocket, Orbiter/shuttle, and so many Apollo-era exhibits? All of the staff we encountered were very helpful and gave us personal attention, including a guided tour for almost an... More

It wasn't horrible, but It wasn't great either! The price was fair, some of the workers were only there for a paycheck (not to help/inform anyone). To many parents letting their kids do whatever and not keeping them in check.

My husband gets into all this stuff. So when we got there he was so disappointed. There were things to see in the museum, but not that much. When we went to the robot zoo as it's called most of the displays were not working and this play area was for the kids. We went outside and the rockets, auto's,... More

This place is better every time I visit. Unquestionably, the USSRC has the best collection of rockets and missiles I've ever seen. Atlas, Titan (not on display), Redstone, Juno, Jupiter, Saturn I (block 2), Saturn V, Shuttle, Hermes, Nike-Hercules, Nike-Zeus, Spartan, Chaparral, Roland, Patriot (inside), Hawk, Corporal, Sergeant, MLRS [ . . . ] Missiles and rockets aren't your thing?...

Excellent place to visit, and a lot to learn. My son and I enjoyed our trip very much. Only issue I had was that the IMAX movie I wanted to see overlapped with the bus tour. We arrived at 9am and spent the whole day until close.

Our family went to this attraction because we have not been to Huntsville before and it was supposed to be really good. Also, another elementary school in our district went to Space Camp and came back with a lot of stories. It was very informational and still entertaining for the younger siblings. The rides were great (although none of us... More

i visited the Space Center about 25 years ago with my children. This time I took my grandchildren, ages 10, 11, 12, and 14. They all loved it. It has, of course, changed with the times. It remains very informative and interesting, even to the younger ones. They all want to go back! You need at least 1 entire day,... More

The best part is to see all the space vehicles. Definitely visit the Saturn V rocket building. The rest of the center is OK. Marshall center tour was informative. When they are holding space camp, the place is crawling with kids.
