For years, Huntsville residents could point to the Saturn I rocket at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center as a distant landmark (located a few miles from the city center). In 1999, a full-scale model of the Saturn V rocket was erected, standing nearly twice as tall as the Saturn I.
The newest addition to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center is the Davidson Center for Space Exploration, opened January 31, 2008, built to house the authentic Saturn V rocket (listed on the National Register of Historic Places) and many other space exploration exhibits. The vehicle is elevated above the floor surface with separated stages and engines exposed, so visitors have the opportunity to walk underneath the rocket. The Davidson Center also features a new 3D movie theater, in addition to the IMAX Theater in the original museum.
In 2008, Good Morning America named the Saturn V one of the Seven Wonders of America (ranked 5th), and televised a segment honoring the Saturn V from the Davidson Center.
