It wasn't bad but there was a lot of reading and displays with some rides and interactive things for the kids. The rides and the simulator were good, my son enjoyed them but was really bored with all the displays and got tired of reading.

Operated by the AL government this is a fantastic family place to visit. This is a great place for kids of all ages. Walking under the Saturn V rocket is amazing!

If you're running late like we were and everything is closed, it's still worth a drive over to see the majestic rockets and space shuttle.

You'll definitely want to visit this facility. It would be a shame to even travel through Huntsville, and not stop to tour this facility. I used to work on the Johnson Space Center site, and yet I was still impressed with this facility.
