CAN WE EAT “SACK LUNCHES” INSIDE SPACE CENTER HOUSTON?
Outside food is not allowed inside the Center. We do have a covered picnic park area adjacent to the guest parking lot which is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
HOW LONG DOES THE “TOUR” TAKE?
The Tram Tour, which takes you over to NASA, takes approximately 90 minutes to complete. The time spent inside Space Center Houston depends if your group views any GIANT Screen films, live shows, and/or takes the Tram Tour. Usually 3-5 hours is sufficient. However, we invite you to stay as long as you like!
WILL MY GROUP HAVE A TOUR GUIDE?
The Tram Tour is the only part of your day that will be guided. Touring the inside of the Center is completely self-guided. Please use the “Things to See and Do” brochure available at the Information Desk to plan your day. A map of the Center has been included.
CAN I MAKE RESERVATIONS FOR A SPECIFIC TRAM TIME?
We cannot reserve a tram time for any group. Trams are on a first-come, first-served basis. Trams usually depart every 20-40 minutes and last 90 minutes. Please check the show schedule on the day of your visit.
