  • Phenomenal. Hands down. This is the most amazing way to experience and learn about the shuttle program. The views are breathtaking, and the people here are incredibly knowledgeable on the subject. If you have a question, someone's got an answer. The simulator was really awesome too, it does full 3d movement, they lay you down on your back just like in a launch. Very fun experience.
  • Just like at the Saturn Rocket, they are very good at building anticipation before letting you see the Shuttle. The reveal is even more impressive here. The way the shuttle is angled and displayed is very well done. The interactive exhibits are also very well done, especially for younger visitors. The center also has a shuttle launch simulator ride but be prepared to wait (you should be experts by now if you've been visiting theme parks). Like at Saturn, they also have a memorial for astronauts who lost their lives in shuttle missions.
