“Too little time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

So much to see. So little time. Set up is unusual. You enter through the gift shop. Then get a photo, then on to the ticket entrance. We used our COSI membership and got in for free. It's in their reciprocating system. They give you a map and Set you loose. Nice rock wall, mars simulator, and geocaching station. My son is looking forward to coming next year for space camp.

“Educational and a Great Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

We spent about half a day at the space center (two adults), and had a great time. A weekday in May was perfect, as there were no lines to deal with. We saw everything, did the rides and saw a great movie. If you have AAA, there's a discount. We had fun.

“Awesome place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

Wow what a view of the Saturn V rocket. It was worth it just to come see that! It was also cool seeing the space shuttle and other aircraft and rockets. Educational for kids and fun for adults. Plan to spend some time here.

Great for kids and adults. Well worth the admission fee. The kids loved the rides. It's changed since the last time we visited there.

“A pleasant surprise, and well worth the price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

I was expecting a much smaller museum with a few exhibits. I'm glad to say that was far from the case. From rockets to aircraft to missles, they have plenty to see and explore. Rides, exhibits, and lots of interactive things are more than worth the $20 admission.
