They charge $5 for THIS? Ridiculous and certainly not worth the cost. This should be free for the limited exhibits that they have here.. Do yourself a favor and just keep driving. You can see all of this museum in 15 minutes at most.

The center was smaller than I expected, but they had some nice interactive exhibits. Your admission includes a nice show in the planetarium. Just over 90 minutes was plenty of time for our family to see the exhibits and watch one of the shows. For families with older children who want to spend more time studying things, it could take...

We happened upon this center 15 minutes before it closed. They didn't charge us admitance since they were going to close. They had cool space things to look at especially for younger kids to learn about space. They even had a simulated space shuttle landing machine (I crashed the shuttle). Interestingly the Coca-Cola connection was only with their initial donation... More

I have to say this is a highly interesting museum. My favorite part is the theater and the virtual star tours! The museum is extremely informative if you take your time to read the displays and watch the videos. I was astonished by the 3D printer because i have heard of the recent technology, but had not yet seen one.... More

This is nice for small kids. I was expecting more. But it is set up for young children, and would be good for them.

While we do have some areas specifically for small children, we are a family friendly museum and have multiple exhibits and shows that are for children and adults of all ages! We try to make sure that everyone can have a great time exploring space and science with us – from Kids Space and Cyber Fighters, to real NASA artifacts... More

Interesting but a little simple compared to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL. I still however enjoyed it, but if I had to choose I would travel the few extra hours to Huntsville.

While we are not as big as Huntsville’s Space and Rocket Center – we do try to pack in as much cool stuff as we can! Next time you come by, ask if there is anyone around to take you up and show you our telescope, or join in on a NASA artifact tour to get a chance to talk... More

Small and rather outdated but a fun quick excursion to keep us busy. Simulators are fun and the cost of entry is cheap.

While we are a small building – we try to keep it full of the coolest most up-to-date exhibits and technology! We have multiple 3D printers that we use for all sorts of things – including printing prosthetics for the Columbus community and holding classes with young inventors to design and print their own space craft and mars habitats.

We loved the movie that we saw, and some of the interactive displays, but were a bit dismayed that it was way smaller than we imagined. Neat little gift shop with unique items though, overall a good experience.

While this small museum provides some interactive exhibits for kids to play with, the cost of entry is way too much compared to other museums in town to truly warrant the fee. Some of their classes may be good, but as a museum, it just fails to meet the mark. Based on the size and quality of the exhibits, free... More

We know we are a small building – but we house a lot of awesome space and science exhibits, shows, technology, and more! We are constantly working on updating our Exhibit Gallery to make it more accessible, hands-on, interactive, and informative. Unlike other museums in town, we are also an outreach center that provides all sorts of programming to the... More
