The 3D or non 3D movie experience is awesome! Great location downtown with restaurants across from the center and FSU nearby. Kids will love the interactive experience and astronaut food for purchase. It's a cool place for sure.

This museum is expensive and has little to see unless you are a teacher and are taking students to experience the mission activity.More

I've been here to see both Wonder Woman, ( 2 times) and Transformers. It's a beautiful theater and great place to learn about different things. The staff is very friendly. A great place to bring your kids or grandkids.

We spent a great deal of time here - wonderful IMAX Theater and the Planetarium is also a great place to learn a great deal abut our universe. You need to just kick back and let the place wash over you.

We spent some solid time here learning about the planets in the Center's Surround-Sound theatre. Truly Amazing. The guides in the Center taught us so much about NASA and the planets. Things we didn't know--and the theater is really spectacular.
