U.S. Space & Rocket Center of Huntsville, AL

On a recent trip to Huntsville, AL, I was able to squeeze enough time for myself to visit the world famous U.S. Space & Rocket Center.  When you first walk into the museum, the first couple of exhibits are a little underwhelming, given the grandeur of the purpose of the site.  There is a display of patented inventions, then a tribute to Dr. Wernher von Braun.

It is interesting, but very museum-like.  Where's the rockets?

Well, once you are thru there, you can go outside!  Rockets!  Rockets!  Rockets!  None of them blasting off, but still impressive, nonetheless.

Of course, there is a lot more than just rockets that go into space.  Without giving too much away, here's a few more photos.  This is really a place you should visit just to see the shear scale of these massive machines.
