I get my NASA fix at Kennedy Space Center here in Florida, so the Ames Visitor Center suffers by comparison. However, you can't beat the price (free), and the convenient location right off the major highway. There were plenty of interactive activities at Ames, and no lines on the weekday when I visited. They had a very nice gift shop too. I am glad that I stopped by and I am feeling guilty for not rating it higher.

We've visited the little building twice and have enjoyed our time there. It is free and has lots of displays and helpful people. You can walk through a part of a shuttle, see a real moon rock, and learn about the space program. It is free and can be thoroughly completed in an hour or two. When you're done, check out the aviation museum on site, it's also worth a visit.
