Truly a discovery center for all ages. The Mcauliffe-Shepard offers immersive, informational movies -- which they project on a dome-shaped ceiling above reclining chairs! There are interactive models spread throughout the center about planets, stars, and the physics of space. If the weather is right, you can even ask the resident astronomer for a look through his telescope. The Mcauliffe-Shepard will answer questions you didn't even know you had about space exploration!
