My husband and I enjoyed our trip here. It was very fun and educational too. We enjoyed ourselves. We also enjoyed the guided tour of the Saturn v area.

My three year old loved our trip here. There was a LOT to do, even for someone so young. There are multiple play areas throughout the center, so there's places to stop and rest while your kids work out some energy.

Very nice staff!! The place will be of even great interest to those interested in astronomy and its related sciences. There is so much to learn here and this explains why Alabama is called a "Rocket City!"
