Was a good time for kids and adults. Lots of kids things to do and nice displays for nasa history. Food was limited and not that good. Admission was steep but how often are you going to see this stuff. Memberships better for locals

I do have one suggestion, wear comfortable shoes. This campus is massive. You can wander around as much or as little as you want and the staff is very friendly. Don't miss the Saturn V building as there are some fascinating things there as well...More
