  • The museum itself is tiny, though there is some interesting stuff. It's a place you visit if you happen to be there to eat lunch or go shopping. I visited the place when they had the Novato Space Fest...  more »
  • Great place for adults and children. Extremely knowledgeable staff and you never know who you will meet here. Not an overly large facility but not short on passion.  more »

  • Love going to this place. Every City should have a space station museum. If more places like this popped up, knowledge of the many things NASA creates would easily be shared and understood with kids and adults of all ages. Together we can share the mystery of what outer space holds for the future to future generations again and again.
  • Great little museum with real exhibition items like a space suit, meteorites, spacecraft panel etc. It's free, so you can drop by for just 10 minutes or go for 6th time and see if they have any new artifacts. Volunteers are engaged and knowledgeable. Be sure to check out the annual Space Festival with real astronauts.
  • A fun little museum with knowledgeable volunteers and great artifacts - many of them you can touch or try on! Can be visited in as little as 20 minutes or as long as a couple hours of you're interested in the details and stories. Also, it's free!
  • Interesting displays but it is very small and limited interactive activities.
  • It's so incredible and I love it
