“History and Space Camp!”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

Both of our kids have attended Space Camp, and loved it! The big "kids" enjoyed checking out the space craft, too. The inside was a lot of fun with the rock climbing wall and other interactive activities. The Space Camp dorms are being re-done...I hope they don't lose that movie feel. Being there took me back to when we were kids and dreamed about going into space.

“Great Place for the Children”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

This is a great place for the children to explore. There is a lot to see and do. You may need two days to see it all.

“Space educational opportunity for both adults and chilldren.”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

I lived in Huntsville, Al for 20 years now and when family visits from out state the the Space and Rocket Center is always the first place we visit. Why, because most people have heard of the Space and Rocket Center, Space Camp for children and are interested in looking first hand at what they have to offer. The exporits at the center are formidable. The IMAX theater is amazing. You can spend and entire day just at the Center.
