About

Space Center Houston is the Official Visitor Center of NASA Johnson Space Center, which is home to Mission Control and astronaut training. This is one of the only places where you can actually see astronauts train for missions or touch a real moon rock. Independence Plaza is the only exhibit in the world with a full-scale shuttle replica, and VR simulators and motion simulators give visitors a small taste of what space travel feels like. There are many more exhibits, attractions and activities that are designed to tell the story of America’s human space flight program.
