The Mission of the Challenger Space Center is to inspire, excite and educate people of all ages about the mysteries and wonders of space, science and the universe in which we live...
Here, kids can learn all about the amazing explorations into space, and what that means for technology! How did the technology come about? Who were the people behind these epic journeys into the unknown?
Through amazing exhibits, you can learn for yourself first hand at the amazing feats of the astronauts - and kids may even be inspired themselves to train to one day go up into space!
You never know - perhaps it will be your photos on the wall of the Challenger Space Center soon!
Space - the final frontier, and the destination for your next family day out in Arizona!
You can have birthday parties at the center! Kids can party like an astronaut, have fun and learn cool science experiments at the same time!
They have a gift shop that you can explore, with a great collection of space and science related educational books, toys, games, posters, t-shirts and more!
They love taking field trips! Just speak to staff to arrange your visit! The Challenger Space Center delivers space-themed, age-appropriate activities, designed to teach kids about Space Science while having fun at the same time!
