  • Nice tower and view on level 7. Breezy and good place to take pictures. There just weren’t that many interactive things to do as they claimed, and most of them were out of order. It’d be great if you were a space and history geek, lots of info.
  • The price was very inexpensive. The staff very knowledgeable and I enjoyed going on each floor experiencing what was there. Although I ‘m afraid of heights I had no problem going out onto the Observation deck. on the seventh floor they also have binoculars that you can use for free to look around I took many pictures and was very enjoyable. The view from the 7th was beautiful. They also sell Observation tickets on launch days how cool would that be.Every every floor had something to either read or look at.
