Family Fun and Education at Johnson Space Center

Of all the many attractions that Houston has to offer, none seem to be more well liked than the Johnson Space Center. This facility is not only home to NASA's command and control center, also the space shuttle program, but is also a fantastic assortment of the history of space travel. The assortment of exhibits here always finds something of interest for every single member of the family, making it a great vacation hotspot.

Johnson Space Center is open every day of the year except selected holidays. In the summer and on holidays when they stay open, the hours are extended. There are special events that take place all year long at the center, so if you're planning to go at a particular time, it may be a good idea to call ahead and see if one day may be better than another if your schedule is flexible. The center is located 25 miles from Houston.

There is an admission price to the space center, with children and seniors receiving price breaks. Several internet sites provide reduced tickets to the center that you won't get at the main gate. Summer and the holidays are the busiest occasions for the Center, as are most weekends. For a more calm and leisurely excursion of the facility, winter months and weekdays are by far your greatest bet for small crowds.

Once in, there is a virtually limitless variety of activities to choose from. NASA Tour, the Astronaut Gallery, the Kids Space Place, and the Feel of Space exhibits are just a handful of those awaiting visitors. There is also a walking audio tour of the facility which supplies guests with a historical past of the space program, as told by former astronauts. You can send your family off in various directions, then connect at the Space Center Theatre for a show that you won't quickly forget.
