Fodor's Review

Visitors of all ages can't help but get excited about math and science exploration at this museum that features a space mission simulator, an IMAX 3D theater, and the Downtown Digital Dome Theatre and Planetarium. Every kid, and kid at heart, can reenact a space mission with The Challenger Learning Center Space Mission Simulator. The next best thing to actual space flight, the simulator features a Mission Control room designed after NASA Johnson Space Center and an orbiting space station modeled after the laboratory on the International Space Station. Hands-on or demonstrational science techniques and equipment can be found throughout the museum.
