  • Amazing !!! Such a fun and educational experience. So many things to see and learn from the past. Very cool tours as well. They also have a moon rock you can touch which is honestly pretty awesome. Aircrafts are mind blowing ! The guide really help understand everything. Remember to try the Houston Orbiter 360. An unforgettable experience !!
  • Been there a few times, and every time it gets better. I was born and raised in "Space City" and have always loved the Johnson Space Center. GREAT educational place to take the kids for a day trip/field trip.
  • It was awesome. Although due to thunderstorm our tour was shortened but fortunately we took another ride to explore further. Food inside was extremely expensive. Make sure you eat first and then go, although it needs almost a full day to explore everything.
  • Extremely great place to spend your time in. Definitely worth the money and more! I thought it had everything your looking for, movies, interactive games, theater, free trolling rides, and space crafts. It was so much fun!
  • The best space museum around. They have many great tours of actual NASA labs and facilities. A must go for any space fanatic.
