Amazing facility, although most of it is showing it's age. Lot's of interesting displays. The Saturn IV building is the best. Lot's of Apollo history. The iMax movie is also good and worth the extra cost.

This is the best place to have a space camp because it is inbolved with so many fun activities. The museum is a really good one. Rocket Park is extremely educational.

I was in Huntsville for a convention and delayed my return trip to have time to visit the U.S. Space and Rocket Center. As an adult, I found the attraction very interesting with many interactive exhibits. This is a very family friendly attraction....I'd say for children from 3rd grade and up who are interested in rockets and space exploration. I... More

If you have children who like outer space, this is a great place to take them. It is a great day trip and very educational but offers fun activities for them too.

If near Huntsville, go see! There's 3 areas to visit with your $23 adult ticket: main building with exhibits and large hands-on kids center; the outdoor space/rocket rides (included in ticket price); and the massive rocket Davidson Center museum. Informative, interesting history facts and learning activities for both young school children to adults. Plan to spend 3 hours there and... More

We took our 13-year-old grandson to visit the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL. We enjoyed the space center as much as he did. There are many hands-on exhibits and simulators for children and adults, also several IMax theaters. To fully enjoy everything at this space center, plan to spend at least 5 hours to take it all...

We enjoy taking our nieces & nephews to visit, as they always enjoy the hands on exhibit and walking around rocket park. We went recently with my in-laws, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed a just adult trip. There's a lot for both age groups!

Simply amazing collection of space and rocketry material- even better than the Smithsonian! We were most impressed with the actual Mercury and Gemini capsules.

If you are interested in the space program, especially if you are interested in the history of the Apollo program, you should visit the center. We did not have enough time to see everything, but we did make it through the Davidson Center for Space Exploration where the Saturn V rocket is on display. That in itself was worth the... More

We travel by Huntsville every year on our way to the beach so this time we thought we'd visit the Space and Rocket Center. We are members of our small city museum at home and that membership granted us free entrance to the Space and Rocket Center. We are a family of 5 and saved roughly $115 with our $50... More
