Small but fun

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

Wow! This place has everything! Authentic Nasa equipment that was actually used, simulators, classes and films on the space agency. Heck even a really cool gift shop! This place is great for schools, groups or just fails looking to have a great time. Do yourselves a favor and go!

Lots of fun for the 4 year old and up. There are 4 flight simulators that I even got in as the dad. Several things were not working, thus the 4 stars, but staff was nice and everything that did work was cool to watch and see.

It was nice to see the planetarium show but after that not much in there to do. They charge $6 a person which if you didn't see the show you would be through it in 30 minutes tops. Ok for small kids.
