For out of this world fun, set your coordinates for the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. This incredible facility is often billed as “Earth’s largest space museum,” and for good reason; the U.S. Space & Rocket Center has one of the most extensive collections of space artifacts and displays more than 1,500 pieces, featuring rockets, engines, spacecraft, simulators, hands-on exhibits, and more.

Some of the museum’s permanent exhibits include ISS: Science on Orbit, which invites visitors to experience what it’s like to live and work in space on the International Space Station and Rocket Park, where 27 missiles and rockets show how army rocketry launched America’s space program and gave rise to NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center.

When it’s time to refuel, visit Mars Grill, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center’s onsite quick-service restaurant. There you’ll find earthly delicacies like burgers, barbecue, and even an all-you-can-eat salad bar. 1 Tranquility Base, Huntsville, AL 35805
