I love this museum!!! if you have children, they will love it: the space camp and other activities for kids they will never forget. In my opinion, some spaces could be more didactic: a lot of video shows, but no much phisicis explanations for some devices and projects used by NASA. Sometimes I was lost between NASA and the US...

Great stop for families with kids that are even remotely interested in space and the vehicles used to traverse it. Fun Imax theater as well.

We were a group of 16 seniors that had a wonderful time. We all learned a lot about the US Space Programs. The staff was super. Our guide for the Rocket Building was excellent.

Lots of fun and very educational at the same time. Lots of hands on things to do for children and adults alike. Its a little expensive, but if you are local you can buy a year long pass for almost the same price as a single day entry. Bottom line, it was a great day for the family.

Interesting display of mostly Apollo era and Space Shuttle information. The Saturn 5 display is very similar to what is at the Kennedy Space Center bus tour stop. I did not have time to take the bus ride - tour. The rocket garden features a Saturn 5 and earlier rockets but most are looking a little aged. I enjoyed the... More

I have been coming to visit the USSRC since 1992. I did my MA Thesis on Dr. Wernher von Braun and the German Rocket Team in America. This required me to spend a significant amount of time in Huntsville between 1998 through 2000 doing research. I have lived in New Orleans for 9 years and I return to visit the... More

This summer we sent our third child to space camp. We always go for graduation and spend a couple hours touring and letting them tell us about their eek.

I really liked the information and the displays that show a history of our space program. I wish I had some of the grandkids with me!

Attended a corporate event at this venue. Amazing to walk under a rocket. They offer really interesting programs for kids and team building experiences for corporations. Lived it!

This place has been on my bucket list for 31 years. This was THE BEST experience I ever had. It's worth the money and you can spend all day there.
