What a wonderful day trip for the family. If you live in the Nashville area or Birmingham area be sure to make this a stop remembering the history of those who walked where few men have.
Space Camp is a wonderful way for young science buffs to learn and carry out missions in the style of good leadership and teamwork.
Last year the center had a wonderful July 4th open house. It was filled with good eats, live music and the kids were able to ride the Space Shot and the G Force Acellerator at not cost per ride.
They also had a wonderful fireworks display on the grounds. Well worth making the trip and if you don't want to drive home the same night, there is a Marriott within a short walk near the center.

Went to watch the Great Moonbuggy Race. Also walked in museum a bit as well. If you have kids into "building" things, this FREE event is worth going to. About 80 teams, HS and College from all over the world compete in human-powered 2 person bicycle-type vehicles along a simulated "moon surface course. Great family event, usually held in April. http://moonbuggy.msfc.nasa.gov/. Highly recommend it.

Everytime I go I am still amazed. My father was one of the engineers that hepled develop Staturn V which is housed in glass for all to see. History never fails to entertain

The staff is wonderful - the information is incredible - the kids enjoy rides, but learn stuff in the process - I learned a lot about the space program and how stuff 'works'
