Our cub scout pack spent the night at the Space and rocket center, rooms were fine for what we needed, they had seven single bunk beds per room and a half of a picknick table in each room and nothing more, common bathrooms for about 12 rooms. Our group had an average of 4 people per room but we spent so little time there it would not have been a big problem to have had more if necessary. The bathroom was tight even for our smaller group.
The food was poor, enough said.
The guide we had was very good with the boys and very knowledgable. I understand there were 500 people spending the night in the complex and the staff kept us on track and where we needed to be. We traveled from station to station following our guide and the system worked well. The rockets were very cool and the history was interesting. The imax movies were pretty good but if you sat to low in the theater or off to the sides it was a little difficult to watch. We saw the general movie on flight (planes not rockets and one on the hubble satilite. I would have thought that one on space flight would have been more consistant with the theam of our location so that was kind of a downer.
There was a good mixture of learnig and activities for the boys and even though we started at 9:30 AM and went to 9:00PM and began our second day at 6:30 and left for home at 2:00 the kids had a great time. Very little down time other than meals.
If you get a bad guide you are toast but as I said ours did a good job. I do not know if it is expected or not but we took up a significant tip for our main guide and the assistant.
Even though I lived through all of it I learned a lot and enjoyed my experience.
