Host an Event

Not only does Space Center Houston provide a unique and unforgettable venue for your event, but also a portion of the revenue from every event goes toward inspiring adults and children to achieve amazing things through the wonders of space exploration.

We do it all — corporate events, team building exercises, holiday parties, galas, private receptions, meetings, seminars and weddings. We provide a worry-free hosting experience including customized service, your own event planner, award-winning food, one-of-a-kind space artifacts, attractions and the benefits of an indoor venue.

Service and catering

Our team will work with you to create memorable experiences for all your guests. Your personal event coordinator will guide you through the planning process step by step, ensuring every detail is executed to perfection.
