  • This is a kind of half-baked attraction, it feels kind of thrown together. It has some great artifacts which little kids won't care much about. There are some activities like building a Mars lander th...  more »
  • They have lots of exhibits of space related items and are constantly changing. It's not located on the "beaten path" but it's worth visiting.  more »

  • Brought my son here to check out the exhibits and was disappointed. First $10 a person for a tiny exhibit is not worth it. I would have been happy to pay 3-5 bucks for this. There is a minimal amount of exhibits there. The children's museum exhibit helped us pass a little more time and was really the only thing there geared towards children. It's definitely not worth the price tag
  • Great place! My little ones loved the super kids traveling exhibit and could have stayed all day. My older children were fascinated by the information and interactive exhibits. They loved the scavenger hunt as well. The open floor plan made it easy to keep an eye on everyone. The straw rockets blast off was a favorite for everyone!
  • This was a great stop for the family. Plenty to see and do with our 9 and 2 year old. There are more activities available on Saturdays than during the week. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. This will be a regular stop for our family when we're in town. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because there are definitely 5 star space museums out there and this one is just shy of that. But they are well on their way. There was construction going on in the rear for some expansion, so we're looking forward to seeing what they do.
  • Very small and definitely geared more towards kids. My boyfriend stopped here to kill some time on a road trip. We had a great time though and the guide was knowledgeable and had some great stories! We saw the whole place in less than an hour, but they do have some neat little exhibits. Worth a peek.
  • I have small kids and they really had fun. But it would make more sense to turn the children's farmers market into interactive rocket ship replicas with periscopes and dials to incite the kids imagination of space. The thrift stores don't really match the museum.
