SPACE CENTER HOUSTON

Tour – Tuesday, October 1, 2019
9:40 am – 3 pm (Bus departs the hotel at 8:45 am)

$125.00 per person includes transportation, private tour and meal voucher

The nonprofit space museum Space Center Houston is the Official Visitor Center of NASA Johnson Space Center, which is home to Mission Control and astronaut training. At Space Center Houston, visitors can experience space — from its compelling future to its exciting present and dramatic past.

Space Center Houston is one of the only places on Earth where visitors can see astronauts train for missions, touch a real moon rock and take a behind-the-scenes tour of NASA. Visitors can go inside the unprecedented international landmark Independence Plaza, the only exhibit in the world with a full-scale shuttle replica mounted on top of the original shuttle carrier aircraft NASA 905 and standing eight stories tall. The exhibits, attractions and hands-on activities in this 250,000-square-foot educational entertainment complex tell the story of America’s human space flight program, giving guests an experience like no other.

Your day will start with a 90 minute guided  Tram Tour of NASA to see Historic Mission Control, an astronaut training facility and Rocket Park, including the iconic Saturn V rocket.  You will then enjoy a 60 minute personal tour of Space Center Houston and discover the intriguing details of flown spacecraft on display and learn of the innovations NASA is making today to achieve the feats of tomorrow.

 

You will have time after the tour concludes for lunch in Zero-G Diner, and more exploring.
