Wasn't sure about this after reading some of the reviews, but glad we went.
Arrived about 1pm (£2 parking) and unsurprisingly as it was half-term, found it busy. However, we managed to do / see most things, save for simulator which always seemed to have a 45 minute queue, every time we asked.
Don't be put off by the fact that it's a relatively small area. There's quite a bit packed-in. Favourites were the planetarium, rocket, 'blast-off' show and being able to step inside space living quarters etc...The history of space development / competitiveness is explained very. Good to see the strong link with Leciester University.There's several photo opportunities for the kids and things for them to press and see e.g. bit of the moon, astronaut food etc...
Entry prices are about right although I did begrudge having to pay the full price and not having chance to experience the simulator. A cheaper family ticket would be appreciated.
Toilets and food / drink facilities are adequate. There's a self-service drink, sandwich and cake etc...station and seating area provided. Prices are reasonable. There are also lockers (£1) and a free map.
I would visit again. Not sure whether it would warrant an annual trip though. There's enough here to educate and entertain without being tiresome (in several ways), and it gets a thumbs up from 4 and 7 year olds.
