It was spectacular! The weather was terrible, but I was so happy to be there! Everything was well organized, the people at the desk were kind and helpful, and they were very nice to schedule our team tours back to back rounding out a wonderful day! I really wanted a NASA, or Artemis or HSC sweatshirt, but they were too expensive. I would definitely revisit the space center.

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.

Wonderful experience for all things NASA. The history, so many things to see and experience as well as future plans for space exploration.

Very well organized great guides, every thing was well explained and demonstrated

So much to see, I should have gotten there earlier in the day.
