We stopped by while in town, and although it's quite small there are a few things to see and learn: our total stay was only about 20 minutes. After that we went to the gift shop which was excellent. Lots of NASA branded hats and...More

Hubs and I have been to obscure places before but this was probably one of the most boring places I've been. It wasn't up to par with other NASA museums I've been to by any means. Not worth the traffic we sat in getting here.

Small but nicely arranged space exhibits. The solar room shows the surface of the Sun popping and blazing. Outside is the rocket garden and the Astrobiology walk were cool. The staff were pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable.

We really enjoyed our visit here. One quick point: We first stopped at the Goddard Space Flight Center which was the wrong location and went to the Visitor Center, which is a short drive away. The "science on a sphere" exhibit in the back, auditorium...More

The center is been around for many many years and some of the facilities are very old it is more of a warehouse in most of the areas that I work in so you have to make sure you watch all of your surroundings. I...More
