15,000,000 Visits and Counting

Richard Allen welcomes Space Center Houston's 15,000,000 visitor.


On the cusp of celebrating our 20th anniversary, we welcomed our 15,000,000 visit to Space Center Houston!  Ashley Cuello, joined by Caitlin and Gillian Smith, received thunderous applause as they passed through the turnstile .  Space Center crew members greeted them with gifts and balloons as the dazzled girls tried to make sense of the commotion.

Space Center’s President and CEO, Richard Allen, greeted them in person shortly after 11am.  “We feel very privileged to have been able to excite so many visitors about space exploration over the years.  The future of NASA is bright and exciting and we look forward to sharing amazing new stories with the next 15 million visitors.”

In addition to a beautiful prize pack, Ashley, Caitlin and Gillian were  also treated to a lunch with astronaut Brian Duffy and explored the all new exhibit Goosebumps: The Science of Fear!
