“Excellent historical tour”
Reviewed 19 September 2012

Excellent history on the US space program. Includes many acutal and mock-ups rocket engines and a full Saturn V. The outdoor exhibits are similar to other outdoor static displays.

“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!
