The mission is a lot of fun! It is NOT a ride, you are a member of the crew of mission control or a shuttle and have to do tasks for a safe flight. Children need to read (or have adults who read for them to do missions)

I would attend the light show with school age children. It was like a science classroom with cool experiments involving light. We learned a lot and all the kids got a chance to assist with different things.

Four-year-old grandson loved the center, especially the light presentation, patch display, and blue foam blocks.

From Our Editors

Challenger Space Center is on a mission: to excite and educate its visitors about science and the vast wonders of outer space. That excitement starts as soon as guests walk onto the entrance's elevated gantry bridge to see a four-story, space-themed mural painted by Robert McCall. Then it's on to the museum, where the center's affiliation with the Smithsonian Institution enables it to offer top-notch exhibits, which range from a model of an Iridium satellite to three separate meteorite exhibits. Regular Family Star Nights encourage families to bond over stargazing presentations, a simulated shuttle launch, and other activities.

To immerse themselves in the space experience, groups can also sign up for two-hour simulated space missions that unfold in three spaces: a mission control room designed after the Johnson Space Center; the Spacecraft, which simulates a room onboard the International Space Station; and the Earth Space Transit Module, which helps crew members dock there.
