We are so glad we stopped in here to get info. The staff was very informative, gave great tips on saving money for attractions, even let our son film their elevator for his YouTube hobby and directed him to a historical elevator that he could ride and film in the Huntsville area.

Information center was that and more. Staff were accommodating and helpful on what to do and see while in Huntsville. The building and grounds were attractive and well maintained. Information along with discounts to numerous activities were made accessible by staff members. A must if not familiar with the area or if unsure on what to do.

Lots of information on the city and area as well as good maps of attractions, hotels, and restaurants. No coupon for general admission to the space center; only if you buy the movie and admission "combo." (Same for senior discount) Did give us free bottled water though.
