There are lots of displays and some interactive areas dealing with space topics. We spent about two hours there and really enjoyed it, along with about 50 elementary students.

This is another great place to take kids. They love all the different Nasa themed exhibits. My 9 year old loves it. Goes with his school once or twice a year. It is right downtown.

Good for younger kids. I wish there had been more for us to do. Enjoyed the simulation show/ride. They had an IMAX sort of theatre, we did not go.

A very nice and interesting museum on space. The Ice Worlds movie and the Odyssey was great. It is a small museum and good for all ages.
