  • So much to look at! Interactive and fun. There are games. The view is really nice. It's rather low on space(lol) so go on a slow day unless you don't mind crowds. We went in a Thursday.
  • As an adult for the price ($6.50), it's great. Lots of details that I probably missed. The giant touch screen table looked really cool with lots of info. Nice views from the observation deck. Could benefit from a few more binoculars. Maybe some facing towards inland Florida and not just the port/coast. I had my two kids (4 & 6). They liked the boat driving simulator. Wasn't a whole lot of other things to keep them interested for more than a split second. Some more hands on exhibits would be nice. But again for the price, I was happy.
  • WOW!! Awesome experience. Knowledgeable staff of the area and local space program. Super friendly. She even remembered us when we returned the next day. Just wish I remembered her name.
  • Great for a few hours, learned a lot about the port. Observation deck had amazing views!
  • We were there for the July fireworks events with a group of 11 people. We all have VIP tickets. It was disappointing. They provide self serve snack but no staff to maintain it so it was very messy. The tower is very far from the actual fireworks and it doesn't turned off the lights for the show. The balcony space was also small and very crowded. The kids couldn't see anything behind the adults...we left.
