“U.S. Space History Comes Alive!”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

I visited the U.S. Space and Rocket Center as an adult "camper" at Space Camp. I highly recommend this program to everyone. Participants engage in simulated shuttle missions, learns about the history of the space program, and "train" on a number of simulators. The museums are interesting and depict the space program from its infancy through the modern era.

“Great place for all ages”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

The space and rocket center has soooo much to offer. There is a beautiful facility with many different rockets to look at and touch across many different years of US space exploration. Everyone should visit this facility or another space and rocket facility at least once. It has so much to offer that you can not get anywhere else. It is a whole different feeling to see a rocket on TV and then see something similar in person laid out across a large indoor room or outside standing up. GREAT PLACE...

“Great place to visit and spend the day.”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

My husband and I spent about five hours looking at all of the exhibits and wandering around Rocket Park. My husband especially enjoyed himself. Lots of things to do, lots to see. The IMAX movie was awesome, as well as the Mission to Mars simulated roller coaster ride. Great experience!

“A must see in Huntsville, AL”
Reviewed 7 September 2012

We spent the whole day exploring the space and rocket center. It is so informative! You really need to spend more time if you are like me and want to read and see ALL the exibits. You are left with a feeling of awe. There were so many things that had to come together to make the space missions a sucess and you have no idea until you visit for yourself. We will go back for more!

“cool things but....”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

there are some cool and interesting things there, but its expensive to tour and the facility is very disorganized. The food and gift shop are also over- priced.
