Success! Thanks for posting your review of Space Center Houston. You’ve done the world some good today.


We had so much fun at the space center! My younger daughter loves it. Definitely the highlight of our trip. It was expensive but absolutely worth it. The tram was especially good. The movies were also excellent, We really enjoyed seeing Saturn V, the size was epic. Kids even took home toy rockets. Our little girl has decided she wants to be an astronaut! Highly recommended!

NASA Space Center-Houston

They don't give you that much useful information or interesting items although the presentations are two long. Not so much fun. Whereas you pay $5 for parking and $20 per person. Just go in the case you have nothing else to visit or do in Houston.

An Expensive Playground Loosely Based on a Space Theme

Being new to the area, I figured a trip to Space Center Houston was in order. I was disappointed at what I found and glad that I hadn't paid the full $18.95 (the info posted here is out of date - it's no longer $17.95) because I bought my tickets at HEB at a discount - $12.95. \r
My first disappointment was the $5 parking fee. Once inside I scoped out the food court and the prices there were exorbitant . Eve

Waste of Money!

When I was growing up we would go on school field trips to NASA, which at the time were free. I had not been in years and I figured that since it was now a charge to go that it would be even better than before because they would have the money to do more with it. Was I wrong!! That place was the biggest waste of money ever! The attractions were worthless and the tram was pointless. Years ago you could go into the are... view more

Good for Tourists

The first time I went to Space Center, I was very excited to see all of the ""real"" NASA stuff. The trolly ride to Mission Control is worth the price by itself the first visit. To justify the high cost of admission, and to get people to return, they have these poorly executed ""themes"" like ""Gross!"" etc. Every subsequent time I've been to Space Center, it has been with visiting friends and family. I go becaus... view more

Not what it could be

Being from Houston, my family was extremely disappointed after all the hype. Most of the kids exhibits were broken or disfunctional. The tram consisted of 'this building houses this or that', no viewing just a short description of what would be inside ""if"" you could see in it. Way too expensive, and my 3 kids were bored after the first hour. Poor knowledge from the majority of the younger employees. However, t... view more

I recently took my students on a field trip and boy was I impressed! The education staff was the best I have ever come into contact with. They were extremely helpful in every facet of my visit from taking my reservation to greeting my children warmly upon arrival. The attractions are top notch! I would definitely recommend visiting even if I wasn't on a field trip. We took the tram tour and were blown away by th... view more

Without a doubt the best part of Space Center is the tram tour of mission control. you get to sit in the VIP room and look through the glass where all the history was made. Just being that close to where the phrases ""houston we have a problem"" and ""One small step..."" were uttered was worth the full price of admission. There is plenty for kids. The gift shop and IMAX theatres(with artifact exhibits) were also two ... view more

Fascinating Attraction.

Space Center Houston reveals many of the secrets of space travel. It has hands-on exhibits that allow you to imagine yourself in space. Perhaps the most captivating was the space center control that I had seen some many times on TV. Like other visitors that day, I was allowed in during a simulation of a mission and can only imagine how exciting it would be during an actual mission. I highly recommend this attract... view more

Not Cool enough for Teens

This place is severely over-rated! Don't come here unless all of your children are under 5. It's too boring. Not cool enough for teens. Too expensive as well. Don't waste your time or money.
