  • Small but tailored exhibits that kids engaged in. We loved the simulators. Interested and it made us want to go to Huntsville and see the big one!  more »
  • My husband & I visited today and had a great time. The staff here is so nice and they welcomed us warmly. The center is taking thorough steps with protecting everyone with social distancing rules...  more »
  • Fantastic! Great place for all ages. My 4 yr old triplets had a lot of fun interacting and learning. The movies are a must see! The staff was friendly and helpful (which nowadays you can't find). We will definitely be back.
  • One of the kids absolutely favorite places to go!!! My oldest son (3) obtained a love for space here and begs me to teach him new things about the planets all the time now. Can't wait to bring them back here sometime!!!
