Host an Event

Few things inspire as much awe as the vastness of space. At Space Center Houston, that sense of wonder lives in the spacious 250,000-square-foot educational museum and entertainment complex, making it a perfect venue.

Enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres inside a historic shuttle carrier aircraft; revel in a reception under the stars surrounded by moonrocks and flown spacecraft; host your professional event among some of the most inspiring innovations of our time.

“Our guests were blown away by the facilities and service. It was very rewarding to hear what a great time they had. I really appreciated the hospitality and professionalism.”
