Our two oldest sons attended Space Camp from July 17-July 22. This was their first time attending, and it was a memorable experience for both of them! I talked with several of the camp leaders throughout the week and they were ALWAYS courteous, respectful, and helpful. Aside from the Space Camp experience, the US Space and Rocket Center is a...

Wasn't planning on stopping but I have to admit the Saturn V rocket is so impressive from interstate that it drew me in. Place opened at 9AM And was $23 admission. This place would be ideal for children of all ages. There are even a few rides for the older kids. I went to the Saturn V exhibit hall and... More

My kids were so surprised when we pulled in to the parking lot! We stopped here on our summer road trip. The admission price was very reasonable, and worth every penny! There are two main exhibit buildings to go through, and some simulators. There are also some outside "rides"--a gravitron-type centrifuge ride, and a thing that shoots you up in... More

I have brought students to from the uk to do space academy for two years I have been impressed with the layout of the course both times. The course itself has undergone changes in the last 12 months and I think all those changes has been positive. Attendees are well looked after supervised and accommodated, food included in the price.... More

It was fascinating to walk round this museum. As a teenager I watched with fascination the ventures into space and lost lots of sleep staying up through the night to follow Apollo. So much of the Huntsville exhibitions recalls that past for me and to see a Saturn V up close was mind boggling. One criticism is that information about... More

I was positively surprised when I entered the area and saw how big it is. You can learn everything about space history and how they operate the rockets and while outside in space. You can also go on a G-force ride and a Zero gravity ride.

There is so much to see at the Space and Rocket Center that it would take a very long day at the least to see it all. Different exhibits, movies, IMAX, rockets, space shuttle. Definitely take the time to check it out. It's great for all ages. There are a lot of hands on activities for the kids and the... More

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
