  • The restaurants get very busy but the coffee shop not so. Coffee (latte) was good and not exorbitant. The best drink though is the frozen Stargazer. Loved it! Staff were very friendly.

  • Good museum! Seems definitely more centered towards kids and parents with kids but that’s no problem! The space suits and moon landing sections were cool as well as the pop culture section. The crafts all around and outside were impressive as well! Went the one time and probably won’t be going back but enjoyed my visit. Great gift shop with good prices as well! Parking at $5 is good as well! Easy entrance and exit.
  • We came down from Dallas to visit here. This place was absolutely amazing, the last time I had been was when I was 8 years old. We spent 7 hours at the Space Center and my family enjoyed every minute. They had tons of hands on stuff for kids to do. They had a pop up science lab and the employee that conducted the lab was great. Children can learn a lot of scientific principles. The employees were very friendly and helpful. This is definitely a place worth visiting in your lifetime.
