At The U.S. Space & Rocket Center Alabama




We had this memorable time in Alabama at the U.S space and rocket center last winter. That was my first time to explored a space museum, kids and I had a blast seeing those humongous rockets and spaceships that our Astronauts used when they first landed on the moon and so on from Apollos to Apollos, lol. Showcasing of different kinds of artifacts and achievements of our world renowned heroes of all time.


~ Our future  astronauts~  I loved it! He offered himself to go inside a booth where you dropped 5 dollar bill and it will take a picture of you wearing a space suit, thought that is really cool~

I passed along a tunnel of a spaceship body part where the engines and mechanical stuff are located! It is a real one and preserved! So feeling like an astronaut girl as if! LOL. 

Accordingly, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center has one of the most extensive collections of space artifacts and displays more than 1500 pieces. Displays include rockets, engines, spacecraft, simulators, and hands-on exhibits. I saw a simulator and almost got in to try however i wasn't able to because my son wanted to go with me and there's an age limit. That was really one great experienced, we thinking to go back there sometime soon for my son's field trip i look forward to it!  

How about you guys have you been to a space museum yet? If so, share your experience to us also would love to hear about it here! Wink!
