Family Fun and Education at Johnson Space Center

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

Johnson Space Center is open every day of the year besides specific holidays. In the summer and on holidays when they remain open, the hours are extended. There are unique events that happen all year long at the center, so if you're planning to go at a certain time, it may be a good idea to call ahead and see if one day might be better than another if your schedule is flexible. The center is about 25 miles from Houston.

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

When inside, there is a virtually limitless array of activities to pick from. NASA Tour, the Astronaut Gallery, the Kids Space Place, and the Feel of Space exhibits are just a couple of those awaiting visitors. There is also a walking audio tour of the facility which offers guests with a background of the space program, as told by former astronauts. You can send your family off in different directions, then connect at the Space Center Theatre for a display that you won't soon forget.
