  • There are very good exhibits inside and out and lots of information about space travel. we were disappointed with the planetarium as it was basically an advert for Google and it's moon space race. We ...  more »

  • My parents took me here for the first time when I was 5 years old, (1981)..we lived right down the street. This place holds many wonderful memories for me! The best was the theater... still remember the train!!! I am now 41... born in the same year the facility opened. Thank you so much and much luck for the future. I hope to come back someday soon.
  • This was an odd little museum. The exhibits were a bit dated. Many were broken or closed. One exhibit area was really overheated. The video at the end was very good. A great pitch for becoming an astronaut. And I must say I was pretty amazed at the little memorial to Ham, the first monkey in space. His burial site is right out front.
  • Nice Place To Take Ur Children. We Liked It... Been There 12 Years Ago N Still Hasn't Change. Great Place.
  • The resting place of HAM the space chimp and the worlds smallest IMAX theater. There are many rocket engines on display among the grounds as well as other rocket science artifacts. Learn about the incredible missions man has undergone to slip the surly bonds of earth and touch the face of god. Personal Note: My father served on the USS Wasp during the Gemini Missions. One of the vessels responsible for capsule recovery. It was neat seeing him revisit his past.
  • There were a few fun displays such as feeling the vibrations from the rockets during take off and detailing the mechanics of various rocket fuel engines. It was under renovation during this trip, so there were plenty of areas that will look better later on.
