Don’t miss Space Center Houston’s most popular attraction, the NASA Tram Tour. This is your chance to go on site at NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) and get a behind-the-scenes look at human space exploration.
Located on 1,600 acres, JSC is the training base and home to our nation’s astronauts and the site of the Apollo Mission Control Center, where a talented cadre of flight controllers support the work of our women and men in space.
The NASA Tram Tour is included in your general admission but you must reserve your seat upon arrival.
There are multiple experiences that you may enjoy based on which iconic locations you want to visit and the amount of time you have available.
NASA Tram Tour offerings have limited availability.
There are two ways to get your free boarding pass:
