U.S. Space and Rocket Center.

U.S. Space and Rocket Center

The U.S. Space and Rocket Center is open, masks required. A little pricey, $25 per adult. Was worth the visit.

Saturn V rocket.

U.S. Space and Rocket Center

Much better since the expansion. Very pricey but if you like looking at old space relics this is the place for you.

Rocket Center.

U.S. Space and Rocket Center

Fun day for the whole family! Both 4 and 10 year old were entertained while Daddy geeked out. A couple of free rides that "demonstrate gravity" and a play structure add to the kiddie enjoyment. We stayed all day and didn't even do it all! Would go again.

Liberty Bike.

Liberty Bike at US Space and Rocket Center

The Liberty Bike is plated in copper preserved from the restoration of the Statue of Liberty National Monument. When it's not touring the country, it's located at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center outside of Huntsville, Alabama.

Nearly every design feature is inspired by the Statue: 1) The shift lever is crafted from a section of cable that once carried electrical power to light Miss Liberty's torch; 2) The DaVinci designed carburetor is fashioned to resemble Miss Liberty's Torch and lights up when the bike is running; 3) Handlebars symbolize the spikes in Miss Liberty's Crown; and 4) the front fender and rear swing arms captures the appearance of the Statue's interior structure.
