We visited the Center on Saturday 29 September and were sad to find the gift shop was closed. The staff told us that the Center is closing for refurbishing and that’s why the gift shop and some of the exhibitions were closed.

I had half day free in San Francisco, and decided to visit Nasa Ames Visitor Centre. It's a small place but has some good exhibits. The moon rock sample, mars model and ISS model are worth looking at, and also if interested they have plenty...More

It is the parking lot to the right, the building that sort of looks like a tent. Don’t go through the check point ahead. Several small displays, a gift shop, moon rock, Mercury Rocket, giant planet Earth, a space station module you can walk in...More
This place is small but have interesting displays and artifacts like space suits, Astro meals and inside replica of space stations.

There is a bus that goes from Mountain View to NASA but it's better to go by taxi. There is nothing to pay to get in it's just a small store and an area with astronauts clothes, moon stone and other things.
