The U.S. Space & Rocket Center is Huntsville Alabama's number one tourist attraction.

Shuttle Pathfinder

You can't appreciate how large the shuttle and the booster rockets are until you stand beside it or try to fit it into a camera frame.

Patriot Missile Military Hardware

The Davidson Center below right houses an actual Saturn V rocket that is suspended above the floor and visitors.  The Saturn V is displayed with each stage separated.

In the Space Center are hundreds of interactive displays, space related exihibits and training facilities for Space Camp attendees and Astronauts alike...and you.

Gloria, this really is a special place.  I'll probably do another post devoted just to Space Camp.  Here's a bit of trivia for you:  one of two of the first monkey's in space; Miss Baker, is buried on the grounds of the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.
