This was a neat place to visit. We really enjoyed the Saturn V exhibit hall. We met one former employee that helped design the vehicle the astronauts used on the moon. (It had to be unfolded before use and there was a small replica at the exhibit that visitors can try to fold and unfold). We also talked to one of the guys who worked on one of the simulators. Both had some fascinating stories and it was very interesting and exciting to get to talk to them.
The Saturn V hall also included a real moon rock, Skylab Orbital Workshop, and Apollo capsule.
The rockets and Pathfinder that were located outside were also something to see. In addition there were several outdoor examples of missiles and launchers in addition to a helicopter and 2-person submarine. (I can't believe how small that was!)
We were probably there about 3 hours (including lunch) but could have stayed longer if our 3-year-old hadn't been so tired. I should mention that there is a small play area for toddler/preschoolers. (That helped keep our daughter occupied for a little while). There were some flight simulators that we might have checked into if we'd had more time.
This is also home to Space Camp and Aviation Challenge Camp, and we saw groups of kids who were likely part of those programs. Someday we'll probably visit again when our daughter is old enough to enjoy it more!
