Check out many of the shuttles that launched astronauts into space, check out the launch pads, learn about space history, go on a self-guided or expert-led tour and maybe even meet an astronaut. There are many stations (some hands-on) where you can get most (if not all) of your space questions answered. There's even a shuttle launch simulation ride (44" height requirement), so you can experience what it feels like to be hurled into space. See eight authentic rockets in the Rocket Garden and take a free tour. Don't forget about the Hall of Fame where you can see lots of authentic memorabilia. Don't miss the Robot Scout demonstration. It's one of the better presentations.
