The walk along side the Saturn 5 Rocket gave a wonderful perspective of size. And the tribute to the entire Apollo missions was a wonderful salute to the entire team. The Lecture/presentation on the daily routine on the ISS was well done. it was presented for all ages with wonderful detail and with fun fact humor. All the videos were well done. Staff were wonderful. One tram assistant asked if we had any questions as we were waiting to board the tram. She explain some detail the old mission control and the building which was closed :( Keep up the great work. I'm ready for Mars. Good luck and God Speed, Stephen Baranovics

The tram made areas accessible to visitors. The two stops on the ride was very interesting and educational. The displays in the main visitor building were most impressive. The movie was also good. I lived during the days of early space exploration and it brought back many good memories. The displays also helped me remember some of those who gave their lives for these missions.
