It is super crowded. Would suggest buying tickets on line. Then once we got there, the very first thing we did was get in line for a 1 1/2 hour tram tour. You want to do it quick before the line is so long. They...More

Concessions way over priced. 20 oz bottle beverages $3.50, ridiculous. All shops, dining outrageously expensive.

Such a wonderful experience to see such an in Normas part of history at the space center. Saturn five rocket is worth the little bus ride out. You will not regret going!

Spent an awesome afternoon at the space center- highlights include visiting the mission control viewing and the Saturn 5 rocket. Bought tickets via TripAdvisor and saved some $ too.

This is an amazing experience and would highly recommend a visit is your in Houston. Get there early and go straight to the train tour that takes you around the centre it takes around 90 minutes it gets really crowded later in the day.
