Space Center Houston - Review

“Houston, Houston… We’ve had a problem” These iconic words by members of the flight Apollo 13 are something the world remembers. The Houston section of NASA was responsible for the guidance and the safe return of this space-craft, which despite the aforementioned “problem” returned safely to earth on the 17th of April 1970. This one as well as many other space missions which were successful have been carried out by “Houston”.

So, going to the city and not visiting the thing that it is most well-known for would be a shame. The Space Center has especially been created for the tourists and children wanting to get a taste of the magical field of space travel. With several artifacts, collected items and refurbished space crafts on display it is a fascinating place to visit.

The Space Center has a number of fascinating attractions ranging from a pre-planned lunch with an astronaut to activities that help you get a feel of space. Many old aircrafts have been put up on display and several interactive activities related to travelling into space have been set up. You will get an idea of the history of travelling through space and learn a lot more about the challenges and hard work put into it. There is so much to do, be sure to set aside enough time for this place.  Integral to its identity, this one is certainly a must visit while in Houston.

  • Really enjoyed our trip to Space Center Houston. It was somewhat pricey, as you would expect, but not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Even the meals inside were a pleasant surprise - a lot more variety than anticipated and also not nearly as expensive as I had prepared for. The attractions/displays themselves were very nice. There were four of us so we just got the family membership. I highly recommend this if you are planning on eating there and buying items from the gift store as it gives you 10% off everything. It also gives you priority boarding for the tram tour. This was a real time saver! We really enjoyed all the sights. My kids loved being able to touch a real moon rock and meteorite. There were also good interactive learning activities for the kids. Really makes you appreciate the astronauts. It also really got my kids excited about math and science. Highly recommend a visit here.

  • A great place to spend half a day. I really liked the shuttle display where you can walk through both the shuttle and the 747 used to transport it. There are a lot of displays, but most of them feel geared toward younger children. The only downside is that many of the displays actually talk about future technologies as if they are already here and there isn't any competition for space exploration.

  • Great place to visit. It's only drawback is that its a little far from downtown. Apart from it, it's a great place to visit especially if you like Science and have interest in Aerospace. I would recommend to do the tram tour first as it takes at an hour to complete it. Waiting times are only for tram tours of not more than 20 minutes. Food and refreshment options are also available. I do not recommend to come on a rainy day as sometimes tram tour services gets suspended due lightening. But I do recommend to check it out.

  • This was a great experience for my family. My daughter found the whole place fascinating and I felt such a massive feeling of pride sitting and looking at mission control. The idea that humans can accomplish so much when working together is massively inspiring. The amazement I feel looking at most of the stuff there made me feel like an ant amongst gods. Even the food was pretty good for being a tourist attraction. I'm looking forward to coming back and enjoying it all over again in the future.

  • Place gets very crowded in the afternoon. Recommend to arrive at opening time to avoid crowds. My teens loved the flight simulators, which let you actually barrel-roll. Worth the $8, and no line at opening time. The really good stuff to see requires a tram ride from Space Center Houston to the various NASA buildings. By far the best was the "Level 9 tour"--the all day guided tour that visits more places, gets you closer, gives you more details, and keeps you out of the crowd. Ideal for self-admitted "space nerds", or just budding teenage STEM students exploring their interests. Our guide Brenda was an amazing encyclopedia of knowledge, both historical and current, both trivial and profound. She's been doing this tour for many years, and has all the numbers, connections, and human stories. The other guide we heard from was also good. Level 9 was worth worth every penny to us!
