The first thing most people notice about Huntsville is a huge Saturn V Rocket right beside the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. Huntsville, Alabama is known as the Rocket City (click here to learn why) and was recently chosen as the new home for Space Command. Sometimes in this area, it IS actual rocket science. With all the love for our city and the cosmos, it’s no wonder that several artists have created space themed murals all over the area. Here are four murals that are perfect for exploring with your family.
