The site was great to visit and.to learn about space history but the entry fee was terrible. There is no reason for the entry fee to be so much. The tram line tours are nice but the lines are between 45 minutes to an hour or more for each one. You would was your full visit by just trying to get on a tour ride.

If you are in Houston, you shouldn't miss the opportunity to visit the Space Center in Houston, especially if you have children between 8-14. This is the 50 year anniversary of our flight to the moon and a great time to share this history with your kiddos.

We've been members of Space Center Houston for the past couple of years. We bought their friends & family package which includes unlimited admission for up to 6 (plus free parking) for a year, plus 2 guest passes. It is nice because we are only 10 minutes away so we can just go for a short while and not feel like we have to do everything. There are other benefits too such as not having to wait in lines and special events early admission.

This past Saturday, we did the tour of Mission Control. Be advised, you have to get advance tickets for this. They don't cost anything, but there's only a certain number of people who can get into the room and the whole thing takes about an hour by the time you load the tram, go to the building, get upstairs (you have to climb 87 steps or they do have an elevator), watch the presentation, take pictures, and return. We got there at opening at 9am. We got on the first tour which was at 9:30am. If you come later, you are likely to not be able to do the tour and you cannot do advance reservations.

For the 50th anniversary of the first Moon Landing, they completed restored Mission Control back to the way it looked in July 1969. The presentation is stunning and makes you feel like you are right there.

I highly recommend this!

If interested in 'the space race' in a limited way, & visiting Houston, then the Houston Space Centre will not disappoint. But those with more intelligence will quickly get bored with the limited displays within the building. The simulators are not included in the entry price and put off many people from using them. Some displays & presentations were interesting enough, but seemed predominantly aimed at young school children. So as a young family day out it is mildly recommended. For the older visitor there could be better ways to spend your time in Houston.
Interestingly enough, one tour that includes mans first landing on the moon was exactly the same presentation I saw at the Kennedy Space Center in '84, including the set-up of the control room.
