We had only a couple of hours to visit so will definitely go back. Just unbelievable engineering over so many years, and all of it on display here. A definite must-visit if in the area.

Nice way to spend some time. The shuttle mock up is impressive with the fuel tanks attached. Did not know how huge the tanks were. Why would someone bring 120 1st graders to this place?
