I’m a pilot. Have always been interested in all aspects of aviation. I even attended Space Camp in Huntsville, AL With my oldest daughter when she was 17 years old, in 1986. That was fun. That was a great bonding experience.

It’s my belief you don’t need to be a space buff to appreciate humankind’s accomplishment of exploring space. It’s incredible, yet humbling the technology available at that time and the different missions astronauts had. You’ll not only learn about the history, but you’ll see life-size models of various equipment including rovers and pods. For me, the highlight was both the tram tour to the Saturn V and entering the Boeing 747. We also visited the BOOM experience. That’s a great show to learn about basics including how combustion is formed. Adult tickets cost $24.95/each. We purchased tickets online. I paid an additional $5 for parking, but I didn’t see parking enforced. Definitely a highlight of my Houston trip.

Very intresting My kids (age 11, 9,6) were dine after 1 hour Not for young children Advice book your virtual reality, tram and and other rides as soon as you get there. Advnatahe to show up early. We showed up at 11am and the next available tema was at 1500 and the next available virtual reality ride which is not included with admission was at 1600 hours We were gone by 1500 hrs because lids were bored Gift shop is nice and has usual roueity gimicks and prices Didnt really interact with any staff but the tram claims ti tour the 1600 acres of the property is hugely exaggerated itvtakes you to a warehouse 5 minutea away and the tour guide gives a 20 minute explanation and you ride back

Space, the final frontier These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise Its five year mission To explore strange new worlds To seek out new life And new civilizations To boldly go where no man has gone before Space Center Houston is a space nerd's dream come true. They got the rockets, the spaceships, the parts, and a fun little tour of facilities. $30/adult will seem steep for the average science minded American...but nerds like me will love it! Live long and prosper, may the Force be with you, so say we all!

A word of caution: I would not bring any children under 12 to this exhibit. For young children it is extremely boring for them. Be prepared to shell out a lot more money after you walk in the door for the simulators and trinkets that they want to see you, like a five dollar commemorative coin.
