Immerse yourself in the history of space exploration.

The U.S. Space & Rocket Center showcases the rockets, achievements and artifacts of the U.S. space program. The center opened just after the Apollo 12 Moon landing in 1970. Visitors will see the Apollo program hardware and as well as Space Shuttle exhibits, army rocketry and aircraft, more than 1,500 rocketry and space exploration artifacts, and many interactive displays and science exhibits for all ages. Astronaut Owen Garriott described the place as, "a great way to learn about space in a town that has embraced the space program from the very beginning."

Tickets are $25 for adults and $17 for children. General admission includes access to the Saturn V Hall, Moon Crater, Military Park, Rocket Park, Shuttle Park, Apollo: When We Went to the Moon, and the Rocket Shop. They also offer astronaut training programs, a flight simulator, Shuttle experiences, an Apollo virtual reality experience, and shows played in the planetarium for an additional charge. The center also offers bus tours of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, and space camp programs. Hours of operation are 10 am to 4 pm Tuesday through Friday, 10 am to 5 pm Saturday, 11 am to 5 pm Sunday, and closed on Monday.
