Full disclosure: We went while it pouring buckets of rain so we weren't able to do anything outside. Also if you're Active Duty military you get in for free.

There are a lot of cool things to look at if space, rockets, and robotics are a passion of yours. They have exhibits where you can build your own space station modules. They have a couple of different flight simulators. They have a rock wall for children to climb (not sure why, other than maybe teaching that astronauts need to be physically fit). They offer a couple of different IMAX movies but we did not partake. Overall the material can get a little dry but it is generally interesting. We also saw a bunch of groups of space camp kids, that were sometimes more fun to watch than the informational videos. They also had a full wing of how the Army has used missiles in the past and the future of projectile warfare. Some interesting things but overall unless you're a diehard this could be skipped. However, there didn't appear to be much more in Huntsville to do.
