Apollo Mission Control Center Tours
Reservations can be made for either the 10:30 a.m. or the 2:30 p.m. tram and are limited to the number of free general admissions typically allowed as a benefit of your membership.*
Please note that all guests are currently experiencing limited opportunities to visit the restored Apollo Mission Control Center. As such, we ask members to verify their plans to visit to Space Center Houston prior to claiming tour tickets.
Timed tickets for other regularly scheduled NASA Tram Tour destinations are not required and priority boarding for members will continue as usual.
*Abuse of the timed ticketing system includes and is not limited to commercial use and the sale of tours. As noted in the terms and conditions of membership, evidence that the benefits and privileges of membership are being abused, in particular online timed ticketing, is grounds for revocation of the membership and all associated benefits without refund. Space Center Houston is testing this new method of ‘member priority boarding.’ Priority boarding benefits all members so long as the system is used only as intended.
Monthly Member Mornings
Space Center Houston opens early for members at 8 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month. During these exclusive hours – before the center is open to the public – members can explore all of our exhibits. Occasionally, members find a variety of pop-up perks such as complimentary coffee and tea, free simulator rides and more. Member mornings are always FREE for members, and there’s no special ticket or need to RSVP! Show your membership card and photo ID for entry.

Discovery Briefings are an exclusive opportunity for Discovery Circle members to get behind the scenes and dive deep with curators, space historians, current NASA scientists, and others investigating deep space exploration.
The Briefing series debuted December 2017 featuring an in-depth exploration of Space Center Houston’s lunar rocks collection – the largest collection of lunar samples on public display in the world and one of only eight places in the world where one can touch a Moon rock.
Since then, we’ve explored the Apollo 11 command module “Columbia,” the Saturn V rocket, space suits and Human in the Loop testing.
Members ask intriguing questions throughout the presentations, but the one-to-one and small group conversations members typically enjoy with the presenters at the conclusion have become a hallmark of the series.
Please note that space is limited and RSVP is required.
