We visited on the last weekend before closing for a remodel. Very interesting and we will be back once it reopens.

We visited the Center on Saturday 29 September and were sad to find the gift shop was closed. The staff told us that the Center is closing for refurbishing and that’s why the gift shop and some of the exhibitions were closed.
There wasn’t much to see, we spent about 20 mins looking at the rock from the moon some space food and a few other things but largely disappointed. It’s in the middle of nowhere and not worth going to unless it’s on your way somewhere.

I had half day free in San Francisco, and decided to visit Nasa Ames Visitor Centre. It's a small place but has some good exhibits. The moon rock sample, mars model and ISS model are worth looking at, and also if interested they have plenty to read about the Kepler mission. It wasn't very crowded when I went (around 2pm on a weekday) which is good as you get time to look around at ease. They also have a small shop to buy NASA goodies.

Educational in general. Interesting exhibits include the Lunar rock, Space shuttle, older space suits and a video loop. All in all it is a quick walk through. Students will be definitely benefited. The Ames Team take good time to answer any question. Students came with a big questionnaire and the Ames Team explained in good detail.

Smaller NASA Site with some older but interesting exhibits we went on a Saturday when it is has more visitors but still room to look around without being too crowded.

The Gift shop was a little disappointing with a lot of empty shelves and what was there was a bit sparse I did manage to get one T-shirt.
