My kids in the past year have really linked into Minecraft and for CSU and the Space Science Center to offer a class on this was amazing. They were immediately hooked. They working on laptops building a habitat for mars after learning a few details about the world they were building for such as temperature, location, etc. Lance was a... More

I signed up my child for a Minecraft 3D printing class. She really enjoyed it. The kids used laptops to build a Mars habitat in Minecraft game. They get to print their creation with 3D printers available in the class. I was very pleased that the science center is offering classes like this for kids. It's positive, innovative and educates...

We went there on family day with our son in boot camp. It was nice and clean, and very informational. We had 11 people with us to go. The cost was not bad with a military discount. We watched the show that was playing, very informational. Outside was beautiful, especially for picture taking with your soldier and family. Very good... More

There is little at this venue to merit the use of the word 'science'. A couple of impressive pieces from space programs have found a home here, but there isn't much to make it into a cohesive space science exhibition. The simulators are essentially arcade games, with little linkage to the context. Unless you have young children and are seeking... More

We had to cut a camping trip short due to rain and decided to use this museum as an alternate activity. My daughter loved the flight simulators most. A couple of the other exhibits were out of order the day we went. It would probably be even more interesting if they give guided tours for groups but we just read... More

Great for kids and schools- Pretty small otherwise. Not much to see there, but elementary school kids would love it. We killed a bit of time here while it rained

The center is a wonderful place to take the grandchildren. The planetarium and flying the ships or controlling a land rover along with other great things to do the children will enjoy this inexpensive and learning space science center. I know my always want to go back and they had a comic-con there the kids loved.

It is very small but what they have to offer is worth the trip. The kids enjoyed going into the planetarium and the hand on activites.

The planetarium (or 'theater') is only a small part of what's on offer,but the dome is actually used to show constellations, and it's ages since I've seen that happen. There's an excellent interactive history of space travel, but you can't hear it if there are children around or the Space Shuttle launch is going on. As space museums go, this... More
