Space Shuttle Atlantis reviews
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.
