What is there to do?

"Houston....we have a problem....with so much to see at the Houston Space Center, we might have to come back again to see it all!"

The moon landing...the flight of Apollo 13...all these iconic moments in space exploration can be re-visited and re-lived at the Houston Space Center. It's an amazing experience for the whole family, and one that will fascinate, and educate. 

There is SO much to see and do at this space-tastic attraction. Did you know that every Friday you can meet a real life astronaut? You can hear them talk about what it's really like to go up into space, and even ask them questions! Maybe it will inspire kids to become astronauts themselves!

If you have ever wanted to get up close to a real life space shuttle, you can get close with the full-scale replica. It's amazing when you see the detail on it. How do you think it can make it's way all the way up into space!

Life on a space station can be fun, and exciting. It can be scary and perhaps long. The Living In Space exhibit is a fun and interactive experience where you can catch a glimpse of what life would be like living on a space station.  How amazing to look down on the earth below!

If you head to building 9 you can even see engineers and astronauts actually working on what might become the future of space exploration! 

Enjoy free time or guided tours around the museum - you might need to keep the whole day free to fit it all in!
