  • This is truly a one of a kind experience. To think this shuttle actually traveled in space over and over again. It is huge. It is just an incredible thing to see up close.  more »
  • Amazing sight, as only one exhibit with the complex, it is the most interesting part of the day we had there.  more »
  • Absolutely fantastic world class exhibit. The introductory film and build up to the final reveal was superb. Really enjoyed our visit there and it was great to be able to ask questions directly to some of the extremely knowledgeable staff who had worked on the shuttle programme.
  • I honestly didn't expect to enjoy this so much. This specific exhibit was amazing though. It wasn't at all crowded either, which was great. Possibly due to me going on a Monday morning. I reccomend this place to everyone, you will come away loving space again.
