As we all adjust to the changing situation around us, we want you to know that we are planning to extend your membership expiration date in an effort to ensure that you receive the value and experience you expect. We respectfully request that if you are able to provide membership support by renewing or joining now, please do so. Thank you for your continuing support. While providing member benefits is not without cost, we are also pleased to share that we will be able to extend your membership expiration date by three months. However, if you prefer to donate those months back to the center, please email us at The Membership team will be sending updated member cards as soon as they are able to return to work onsite.

Apollo Mission Control Center

Not currently available for guest tours

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.*

Not currently available for guest tours

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

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.
