We were the ONLY people there. There were demonstration rooms that were locked. You basically walk around and look at pictures. And there is a movie room that runs a clip every other hour or so. If you go, make sure you get a guided tour. we would have enjoyed it then. Someone to talk about it and ask questions to

Took our three grandchildren, ages 5, 7,and 8 years old. We joined the tour with 10 others to see the museum. Interesting talks with some hands on displays for the boys. plus a play area kept them involved. Small gift store, plenty of parking.

It's smaller than thought, but still has fun and educational things for all ages. The staff was very friendly. The gift shop prices were reasonable.

There was very little to do at the center. They had a building block area, but when a group came, they made everyone else leave. It was very disappointing. My grandchildren did not enjoy it, and they usually love going to centers and museums.

What a disappointment! There is nothing of interest there any longer, they should just close their doors and be done with it.

About Challenger Space Center and Museum

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.
