Depending on your interest in space, you could easily spend a whole day or more at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. The bus tour was an added fee and another 2 hours which we didn’t have, but it seemed interesting. There’s probably something for...More

Very interesting place to visit. The only reason I did not rate it five stars is because a good number of the interactive stations were broken. If you go to the theater, just be aware that the seats are small and cramped. I am 6’0...More

The Space and Rocket offers a lot of things for you to do while you're there. There's a gift shop, rides, and a lot of information to gather.

We enjoyed this place from 4 to 70. I expected it to be slightly more breathtaking and possibly a bit more refined, but it was informative and we definitely enjoyed ourselves. The cafe was pretty ok for a place like this. The 3D movie was...More
