  • The restaurants get very busy but the coffee shop not so. Coffee (latte) was good and not exorbitant. The best drink though is the frozen Stargazer. Loved it! Staff were very friendly.

  • It was so interesting and exciting, With all the tours you can spend easily a whole day, we took the blue tour and can recommend this one absolutely.

  • Good museum! Seems definitely more centered towards kids and parents with kids but that’s no problem! The space suits and moon landing sections were cool as well as the pop culture section. The crafts all around and outside were impressive as well! Went the one time and probably won’t be going back but enjoyed my visit. Great gift shop with good prices as well! Parking at $5 is good as well! Easy entrance and exit.
  • My family and I visited the Space Center in Houston and it was great! Staff were courteous and helping and the facilities were very clean! We purchased the City Pass because we were only in the area for Spring break so we used it for other venues. The wait was fast. Literally, never stopped walking through the line until we arrived at purse check and then again to scan the electronic tickets. We went on a Tuesday. We spent all day there and still did not see everything. Get Tram and virtual rides tickets early because they sell out fast. The exhibits were very interesting and kept our 10 year-old daughter engaged. The two virtual rides were awesome. It was as if we were truly in space. Loved it!! We all left with huge smiles on our faces and vowed it was well worth the money and will be on our list to return to.
