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.

The Space and Rocket Center was extremely impressive. There is so much to see and do we couldn’t possibly get to everything. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes though, there is a lot more walking involved than one would expect.

Great place, but wish there are more rides! Regarding Marshall Space training center bus tour, it is only allowed for US citizen. Terrible old regulation still exists!
