  • This is a great little space museum. Not a ton of stuff to do, but what is there is well done and informative. 
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • All these people on here who are reviewing this place are not being honest. This place is more like a hippie muesum and less about space. Honestly do not waste your time coming here with your children. I am literally sitting at a kitchen table playing kitchen with my son at a muesum dedicated to space. Dissapointing.
  • 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.
  • We went to the Math Alive exhibit. It's smaller than I expected but has some fun things. It's interactive and free for military families right now so that made it great. However, if we were not military I don't think it would be worth the regular admission price.
