    @PhilipTarpley She will love both. I go to UAH and imho there's no better place for AE. The von Braun legacy is still evident there. When MSFC was relocated, the campus library received a trove of archives that I think students can access.

    @anjulmusic That Saturn V at the rocket center is amazing, and so is the Space Shuttle (didn't realize how big they were). One of my daughters is going to UAH for Aerospace Engineering and will be working at the Rocket Center (aka Space Camp) as a counselor next year :)

    I live near Redstone and indeed they do. At the rocket center they have one with a Mercury boilerplate on display. And a Saturn V and everything in between. @PhilipTarpley
