While the exhibits and film are interesting, they definitely feel a little dated. Some interactive exhibits were not working and some did not have adequate instructions for kids or none at all. Our group had the full range of ages—10, 13, 15, 46, 77, 80 and everyone found something of interest.

While I understand the desire not to dwell on a tragic failure for NASA, it was important part of US space travel history and deserves more attention.
