    Nice day out with the family or for those with an interest. Spend a full day to see everything. Worthwhile if you have a half day as well.

    Here lies history. Mission control and Satrun V are must. But you can find much more artifacts at Smithsonian.

    Buy tix online (save $5), eat before you go (expensive considering choices), do the tram tour, go as soon as they open to avoid the crowd and on Fridays you can meet an astronaut...you're welcome!

    You may be limited in your experience if you have a baby/stroller. You have to leave your stroller for potential sticky fingers for the tram tours. Still fun for the kids.

    Some great space artifiacts are in the Starship Gallery. Apollo 17, the last manned spacecraft to orbit the moon is there. You can skip the video and get right to the space goodness.

    The Level 9 Tour isn't cheap, but a real tread for every Space fan. You get a lot closer to the things than with the other tours. I recommend not taking the tour during Holiday season.
