Alternative Title: Feeding My Inner Nerd
I didn't have any idea what to expect, and initially, upon exploring the museum, it met my expectations. I've always loved stars, space, and just Mother Nature's nightly show (a little harder to appreciate in the suburbs, but....I try). The Planetarium was my favorite field trip in school, so...I knew a space center would feed that positive memory, and it did.
I have to add, if I had kids with me, this would also be a PERFECT spot. They had a ginormous play area. Seriously, it was made for big and little kids alike, and they were having a blast. There's a food court, and a gift shop...or two with all sorts of fun things. Like the ever, wonderful, space ice cream.
This is the actual podium President Kennedy used to make his famous speech about America's commitment to getting the first man on the moon. Mission Accomplished.
