Apollo Mission Control Center

Apollo Mission Control Center Tours

Access Member Timed Tickets for Apollo Mission Control Center here

Reservations can be made for the Apollo Mission Control Room tour and are limited to the number of general admissions allowed as a benefit of your membership. You are still able to reserve your spot for any NASA Tram Tour through our Space Center Houston app once you are on site.

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.

*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.

Moon2Mars Member Lounge, presented by Wellby Financial

Members can expect to be treated to the best experience when they visit Space center Houston, but during the Moon2Mars festival, presented by Wellby, members received special perks like never before. The Member Lounge provided Space Center Houston members who wanted to beat the heat, grab a seat, and get out of the sun. Members who came to the lounge received a free Moon2Mars souvenir cup with entrance and a choice of unique NASA merch.

Thanks to our Wellby partners, members were also treated to Wellby promotional items, information about Wellby’s financial services, and free chair massages from a professional masseuse! Decorated out of this world, The Member Lounge also offered members snacks, drinks, activities, and free air conditioning.

They also had the opportunity to visit with Houston inventors and entrepreneurs like Maree’s Greens who grow all organic, locally grown, and 100 percent natural greens.


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. 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. Find out how you can upgrade your current membership level to take advantage of this truly unique benefit by calling +1 281-244-2105.

Making Space for Women : A Discovery Briefing Event

We took Space Center Houston on the road!

Guests took part in this unique Discovery Briefing event in Austin, TX featuring Dr. Jennifer Ross-Nazzal, Historian with MORI Associates and NASA Johnson Space Center, as she presented her book, Making Space for Women.

This was an amazing experience where we explored how careers for women at Johnson Space Center have changed over the past 50 years as the workforce became more diverse and fields once closed to women—the astronaut corps and flight control—began to open.

Space Center Houston members are invited to take part in our next Discovery Briefing event coming soon! Continue watching our website and ensure you are subscribed to the Member Space e-newsletter for up-to-date information.
