It's hard not to simply walk up to this museum and not feel amazed, you're greeted immediately by two full scale rockets after all. The entire center features a plethora of interactive exhibits that are fun for kids and adults alike - including space themed mini golf, a 3D theater, and more. What really makes it stand out is the continuous rotation of demonstrations - there's always something new to try. The Hall is also the yearly host of Maker Faire (an amazing science fair for adults and kids) and Gingerbread Lane (an enormous holiday village made of the classic cookies) both events are not to be missed.
