Go in off times - ie. not when schools have field trips, etc. Good idea to take the free, one hour guided tour - gives a general perspective...then go back to those points of particular interest; also assist kids with doing the scavenger hunt!

Not worth the price of admission. We could only walk around and look at pictures. No tour guide and everything closed to the public. Wish I had never spent the money and drove from Gilbert for over an hour

It's fun but don't expect anything like the science center. It's an educational facility that has exhibits. They do mission sims with school kids so they have a lot of rooms for that but we enjoyed looking at the space memorabilia. Worth the cost.

There is a lot to see! Take the free tour first. It is a great introduction and will make the museum easier to understand. You can go back to get details on things that interested you. There were some younger children there. I'm not sure if there would be much interest to someone under 8.

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.
