It is one of rare places in Sillicone valley where tourists could get in touch with technology. Large parking is just next to the exhibition hall. We expected more modern approaches and or exhibits to display all the great projects NASA is working on.

We took the kids (ages 6-10) after school one day and were delighted with the spacious parking & attraction, freedom to explore with no time limit, and very reasonable entry fee ($0). NASA has long-fascinated the world and the exhibits at AMES show why. Great gift shop too!!

It is the parking lot to the right, the building that sort of looks like a tent. Don’t go through the check point ahead. Several small displays, a gift shop, moon rock, Mercury Rocket, giant planet Earth, a space station module you can walk in and learn about and lots of facts and info. My 16 year old son and I spent about 40 minutes here. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

This place is small but have interesting displays and artifacts like space suits, Astro meals and inside replica of space stations.
Entry is free and there is a overpriced gift shop as usual. Informative for kids.
