“The must see attraction in Huntsville”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

This is the not to be missed attraction in Huntsville. It is even better now that they have added the Davidson center. Really take your time and learn all about why they call Huntsville the rocket city. Also make sure that you take in an IMAX movie. This is a visit that your kids will remember forever

“Good day trip”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Enjoyed learning the history of the space travels. Was amazed at the size of some of the rockets. Would not recommend going on a hot, high humidity day. Would have enjoyed the outside portion better if it was not feeling 105 out.

You need at least 2 hours to see the whole thing and really enjoy it!

Make sure that you do not miss that attraction!

“Better than KSC”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

Having visited Kennedy Space Center the Kansas Cosmosphere and a few other space museums, this is one of the best for techies. Skip the smaller, older building with the IMAX theaters and head right for the Davidson building. Lots of history in Huntsville and that is apparent in the quality of the material. My favorite was the Saturn V technology section. I really appreciated the astronauts footprints too. The bus tour was fun and even on a Sunday you were able to see work in progress at Redstone. If I had to choose between this and a visit to KSC, I am going to Huntsville.

“Lots of Rockets”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Visited with my friends and two 12 year old children. We all had a great time with all the hands on exhibits and reading all the space history was fascinating. The movie Hubble was part of our admission and was very entertaining.
