The chairs are comfortable and set for leaning way back to watch the ceiling. The film was delayed almost 30 minutes bc of a school group that was late in arriving. We thought the effect of... More

If you like space travel, you will like this place. There are several displays of actual clothing and other things used in space. Also have a wonderful IMAX that shows great films about space travel.

Traces the history of inductees into the Space hall of fame and their biography. A few exhibits. Was entertained by reading the most recent inductee, the man who created Star Trek. Suggest you also visit the Space Museum and also the Dome Theatre IMAX

Husband is really into space stuff - this museum / hall of fame is worth a visit. They have lots of different types of space shuttle paraphernalia. Most of the items are older - I guess that's what a museum would have ... In a separate building they feature several different shows - they are worth seeing, or at least... More

A museum about rockets and space travel and the people they induced into the hall of fame and their contributions. They had a whole section on Gene Roddenberry which I found really interesting

The Space Hall of Fame brought back memories of various astronauts including those from Russia. Surprising how many astronauts there are/were. Such brave souls going into the unknown.
