    Hey I know that place well since I live in Huntsville. Did you happen to see the NASA Great Moonbuggy race exhibit? I am in the background during the video in that exhibit. Haha

    I have been there. One of the best attractions everyone should visit at least once.

    Great pictures. Hope you had a good time.
