Great place to take children and has enough entertainment for adults as well. Buy a year pass to a less expensive science center and it will get you in almost any science center in the states. We bought ours I believe in Tullahoma, Tn. Use it in Nashville, Memphis, Florida...really all over. They have some outside rides that are fun as well. Nice trip. Believe we have been 3 maybe 4 times. Also there is a rocket at the rest area on interstate in Huntsville on I65. Neat stop. Years ago there were two rockets with no fence stopping you from walking up to look at it. Great trip!

This place is awesome. I learned a lot about space. The instructers are friendly, delicous food, everything is clean and spotless. What is not to love about Space Camp.

Really cool place. Lots of interesting things to see. Make sure to give yourself enough time to get through the whole place. I unfortunately did not get to see everything before they closed. There are some exhibits inside and outside and you have to walk outside a bit to reach certain areas. Gift shop has lots of items as well.
