Historic Mission Control Tour (available to book on-site at an additional cost)
  • Get Space Center Houston tickets and see shuttles and space suits, and watch a documentary on NASA's history in the Destiny Theater
  • Take a tram tour of the Johnson Space Center, where astronauts train and mission control is located
  • Go inside a replica of the Independence shuttle, mounted on top of an aircraft carrier

On 20 July 1969, Apollo 11's lunar module lands on the moon. It may be the most important day in the history of space exploration. After more than a decade of struggle in the space race, NASA lands a huge win for America, but also for mankind.

Now visitors can pay homage to the astronauts and dreamers who made it all possible, with Houston Space Center tickets! See crafts that have been into orbit, get up close to space suits, and find out more about the future of space travel.

A tram tour of the Johnson Space Center is the best way to start at Space Center Houston, the official visitor center of NASA. You'll see a colossal Saturn V rocket, walk above Building 9 – the classroom where astronauts have trained since 1980 – and enter Apollo Mission Control, where people first heard “The Eagle has landed”. Need to get your bearings on where to go next, the free app has a map and useful audio information in different languages.

It's one thing to learn about something, but seeing the command modules where astronauts sat during the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo missions is another thing entirely. The starship gallery offers the chance to see a lunar lander, and rover, along with modules from major missions.

Ever wondered what it's like onboard a ship? With Space Center Houston tickets, you'll find out first-hand! Step inside a space shuttle and see a mock-up of the cockpit. Visitors can enter two crafts, the Independence and NASA 905, a specially fitted Boeing 747 that served as Shuttle Aircraft Carrier more than 220 times.

Enjoy a retrospective of NASA's history on one of Texas' biggest screens at the Destiny Theater, and charter NASA's formation and most successful missions. Skip forward in time at the International Space Station Gallery and enjoy interactive exhibits, before seeing objects that have been in orbit.

Awesome to see these things up close. The size is mind boggling. It's pricey to do all the available rides, but lots is free.

Great history of Apollo missions and Shuttles, including immersive exhibits and rocket displays. Nostalgic for this Boomer, and also learned things I hadn't known.
