A great rainy-day attraction near Wallops Island, the center conducts launches of its model rockets.

Goddard Space Flight Center Visitor center is worth a couple of hour visit if you are in the area. Great information on both the Hubble and Webb telescopes and the mission at Goddard Space Flight Center. The rocket garden outside is interesting. The facility is...More

I came here because I was in the area. It had most of what you would see at the Air and Space Museum in D.C. It is not a bad place. It is just not a spectacular museum.

A mid-week visit does not lead to many crowds (or staff), which is nice, but the exhibits are sort of haphazard. Some cool items - like the interactive touchscreen presentations, the infrared camera, and the moon rock - but overall seems sort of tired. The...More

We visited the NASA Goddard Space Flight Visitor Center this week. We were at Goddard for another event and thought we should see what was at the Visitor Center. There are a few rockets in the back outdoor area, but nothing else to see there....More
