NASA's Space Center Houston and City Sightseeing Tour
From US$79.95
Discover the history of American space travel with tickets to NASA's Space Center Houston, where you can see everything from full-sized rockets to rocks brought back from NASA missions. Plus since this combination package includes round-trip transport and a sightseeing tour of Houston on a double-decker bus, it's a great way to get your bearings in a vibrant city.
What to Expect
Make your way to a central location in downtown Houston to board an open-top bus for a guided tour of the city. See Hermann Park, City Hall, and the Museum District, while listening to recorded commentary that's full of local facts and stories.

Next, continue by coach to the Space Center Houston, where scientists and astronauts launch rockets and space programs for NASA. There's also a tram tour of the Johnson Space Center included. Watch NASA staff at work, check out the former and current mission control centers, and see the Saturn V rocket, one of the most powerful rockets ever built.

Don't miss the space shuttle replica, Apollo 17, and the International Space Station Gallery's interactive exhibits that explore life on board.

Following your free time at the Space Center Houston, meet back up with your driver for the return trip to downtown Houston.

Waiting at NASA

Feel I'm about to repeat experience of others ... City tour was fun and informative - but with hindsight could/should've been quicker. We took a 30 minute break at the park next to/in museum district - why? We switched bus for trip to NASA and...More

Things to do better.

I was a bit taken aback when the "bus" pulled up on the corner outside the hotel. I say "bus" in quotations because it wasn't a bus, it was a modified van with extra seats, narrow aisles and clearly had the top of it sawn...More
