A large group of us catered a dinner at the Center. We were able to tour the museum before dinner and had a private showing of the Planets presentation. Anyone interested in space travel or astronauts would love the exhibits.

What a great place to take your family, or go with friends. They have some very cool displays. The space lab, The mars robotic lab, and many others. Make sure you plan a few hours because you will need them to see everything here.
