AAA Editor Notes
Space Center Houston is 25 mi. s.e. via I-45, then 3 mi. e. to 1601 NASA Pkwy. The official visitor center of NASA's Johnson Space Center tells the story of America's human space flight program through historic artifacts, exhibits, live shows and behind-the-scenes tours. If you would like to hear about space exploration first-hand, for an additional fee, you can have breakfast with an Astronaut.

Visitors can see a flown SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on permanent display to learn about the growing commercial space industry and climb aboard Independence, a replica shuttle mounted on top of the original NASA 905 shuttle carrier aircraft. Spacecraft on display include Mercury, Gemini and the Apollo 17 capsule, Skylab and Lunar Module Trainers. The Astronaut Gallery features spacesuits from every era of space exploration.

The NASA Tram Tour takes visitors to NASA Johnson Space Center to see the Apollo Saturn V rocket at Rocket Park.

Guided tours are available. Food is available. Time: Allow 5 hours minimum.
