I was looking forward to visiting the Space Center in Houston, but by the end of our visit, I could hardly wait to be done with it.
Ed, the astro-nut, felt the same way.
Mission Control, Building 9, the Saturn V rocket and the Shuttle mock-up were all great places to hide from screaming children.
The tram tour would have been excellent but for the screaming school kids whose teachers apparently had no ability to keep them quiet, despite repeated requests from the guides.
It didn’t help that the sound system on the tram and in the Space Center Plaza were of such poor quality.
Definitely a great place for kids… not so great for adults interested in actually learning something new.

Visiting the Space Center was a requirement when I was in grade school.
Seems like you have a lot of negative comments on everything. maybe you should try to enjoy life rather than bitterly complain about it. And remember, that’s what kids DO, they are high energy, excitable and need to be constantly engaged.
Rosalind Gardner says
That’s interesting. I remember a time when getting taken on a field trip was engagement enough, not to mention that we were given assignments that required we LISTEN and LEARN. Remind me never to visit a place while YOUR unruly children are present.
As for complaining – actually, you’re the one complaining about my commentary.
Peace be with you.
