Took three teenagers here while in town for the International Science & Engineering fair. They all had a good time. The Endeavor exhibit was their favorite. Lots of school groups touring.

I went with my 8 y.o. son, and I had a great time. The Apollo program dedicated area is amazing. Also, you have the Atlantis, wich is really great. There's activities for the children (Space Shuttle simulators!) Love it.

The science center would be a fun casual date. Make sure to add the IMAX viewing- fun and unique. There is the Natural History next door and a lovely rose garden behind the science center.

I just reserved a 3:30 for the Endeavor exhibit and the Science Center closes at 5pm. How long will it take to browse through the other points of interest in the center?
