Three Tram Tours, Three Ways to Board

First-come, first-served ON-SITE

TIME | 60 minutes


Walk an elevated path through the Astronaut Training Facility where NASA astronauts train for current missions and where scientists and engineers are developing the next generation of space exploration vehicles.

Historic Mission Control

PRICE | Additional fee applies

Visit the iconic Christopher C. Kraft Mission Control and discover the Historic Mission Control from which NASA led Gemini and Apollo missions, including the momentous first lunar landing mission as well as early space shuttle missions.

Yes, please time your visit to align with the entry time you chose for your general admission ticket. This time is only for entry to the center, so ensure your choice aligns with the experiences on your to-see list! Entry time denotes the time you will enter the center. We ask all guests to line up in our staging area no sooner than 15 minutes before their entry time.

Are you a member? Skip the line! Members can enter Space Center Houston anytime during regular operating hours.

There is very limited access to restrooms during NASA Tram Tours. Please visit the restroom facilities at Space Center Houston before boarding your tram.

No, there is not a place to purchase food or beverages during the NASA Tram Tour. Please purchase and consume any snacks or beverages before the tour as food is not allowed on the NASA Tram Tour. Only beverages with closed lids (such as water bottles) are allowed on the tour.

Space Center Houston has peak attendance on weekends, holidays and in the summer. We recommend guests arrive as early as possible during these times. We extend hours to accommodate visitors during busy times.

Yes! The NASA Tram Tour to Rocket Park is first-come, first-served for on-site guests. For the Astronaut Training Facility Tram Tour, you will need to secure a boarding pass from guest services as soon as you arrive–these often sell out.

When you visit guest services, please mention your boarding time for your Historic Mission Control tour so you can get booked for a Astronaut Training Facility Tram Tour that does not overlap with it.
