“US Manned space exploration explained”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

It's not often that you get to visit a Saturn rocket. Despite knowing engineering, I was still impressed on an emotional level at seeing such a large piece of equipment. No photograph can substitute for actually touching a giant redwood, no previous experience matches being at the Grand Canyon, and you won't get a feel for just how big the Saturn is until you visit the Space and Rocket center, built around a rocket.

“So much history is one great location!”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Our daughter has attended Space Camp here for 8 years, she loves it! We have not had one complaint! She is a better young woman because of the skills that she has learned here.
