There is many items that were actually in space. We got to hear from an actual astronaut. My 4 yr old is into the solar system and space so we took him to see NASA. He got to go inside an actual Space shuttle. He enjoyed it. We were going on a cruise and came a day earlier so he could see NASA. He told everyone on the ship about NASA. Not sure which he liked better NASA or the Cruise.

It was smaller than I expected and the tram tours take about an hour for the Blue tour but it doesn't feel like you see much, they are included in the ticket price so still worth taking.

Excellent museum, especially for space lovers! I wish it was closer to the city center.

Loved boarding the shuttle, and walking around the faulity. Well worth the money.

An excellent activity, however, there is a lack of people who speak Spanish
