Launch your family camping trip into orbit in our Family Overnight program at Space Center Houston! You and your entire family can experience a unique overnight camping experience.
Pack your tent and set up camp under a twice-flown Falcon 9 rocket or in Independence Plaza, right underneath a Boeing 747, the shuttle carrier aircraft NASA 905, and our high-fidelity shuttle replica Independence. Prefer to cozy up indoors? All you need is a sleeping bag and a pillow to complete your campsite, surrounded by some of the rarest spaceflight artifacts on Earth.
