Donor Recognition

Our donors have helped open the world of space exploration to more than 18 million visitors since Space Center Houston opened in 1992. We are eternally grateful to those who made the exciting learning opportunities, attractions and exhibits those visitors experienced possible.

Our donors are our greatest champions for inspiring the next generation. You give us the encouragement and the means to lift young minds to new heights.
