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.
Discovery Briefings are exclusive opportunities 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.
Last year, we explored the restoration of the historic Apollo Mission Control Center with one of the project’s key leaders, Space Center Houston’s exhibits director Paul Spana, and NASA’s groundbreaking Twins Study with nine of the study’s researchers from across the nation, led by Space Center Houston’s scientist in residence Dr. John Charles. 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.

Space Center Houston exhibits director Paul Spana led a discussion around this landmark exhibit followed by small group tours with our most expert guides.
