Space Center Houston
The Space Center Houston features more than 400 space artifacts, permanent and traveling exhibits, attractions and theaters related to the exciting future and remarkable past of America's human space-flight program - all for one admission price. The experience is designed to engage adults and children alike.
Solid place to spend the day with a child. There are many hands on interactive opportunities to keep kids busy, and plenty of space tales, memorabilia and historical learning opportunities for adults. If your child is interested in space exploration his is a must see. The Blue tram ride through mission control and Rocket Park was a nice one hour tour but come early to beat the line. The tram is open air so be warned when coming on a hot day. Food court is nothing special but food is available at an ok price. It seems like people were able to bring water bottles into to the space center, which would have been beneficial. Admission is a bit pricey but if this is a place you may go to as a family more than once, consider spring for for the family pass. Plenty to see and do to last the entirety of a day.
Great experience. There's a lot to see and do here. Lectures are given by honest-to-goodness astronauts! We got here at opening and didn't leave till 5PM. There's a large food court on-site so you don't have to go and come back, and the prices are reasonable. The interactive exhibits are out-of-this-world awesome!
Enjoyed my visit very much. Very well organized; friendly and well trained staff. Visited on a Friday and arrived at noon with only a five minute wait in line. Johnson Space Center was a great and educational experience; waiting time for the tour was less than 30 minutes :-) Purchased one year membership for three adults and two kids and was cheaper than admission price. Great value! Will be back before membership expires.
Excellent place to visit and can easily spend a day. Both red tour and blue tour are interesting and whilst follow almost the same route around JSC stop at 2 distinct locations - historic mission control and astronaut training. Lots of interactive displays and food hall has plenty of fast food type choice. If combining with other places to visit, worth taking advantage of the City Pass.
Great place to spend part of your day. Parking is cheap and you don't have to walk too far to get your tickets and get into the a.c. There is a good amount of exhibits that are inside which is nice. They have a few things inside that cost extra to do but your not missing out on too much by not doing them. The tram tours are a little warm but they do make two stops that get you out of the heat and into the a.c.. If you want to do both tram tours I'd recommend getting there when they open. We arrived just after noon and there wasn't enough time to do both as the lines can get long. Definitely worth checking out.
