    Huge disappointment. Looking for a cool place to experience the history of space flight, this isn't it! The space shuttle is a replica as are most items on display. Tram tours disorganized. Sad.

    I've been going here since I was a small person. Nothing has changed in years except the touring shows. I always hope for something bigger and more grandiose from a Smithsonian Institution.

    Tram tour is mandatory, although its queue was way to long.. But you can always take the VIP tour if you have an extra money 😅

    Show up early to avoid lines which build during the day. Overall great day excursion, If over the age of 14 the level 9 experience probably makes sense if you are willing to pay a bit extra.

    I planned on visiting for 2-3 hours as I only had 1 day in Houston. I ended up spending 6 hours. The 2 tours are worth it since they lead you into the NASA facilities.

    Nice day out with the family or for those with an interest. Spend a full day to see everything. Worthwhile if you have a half day as well.

    Here lies history. Mission control and Satrun V are must. But you can find much more artifacts at Smithsonian.

    Buy tix online (save $5), eat before you go (expensive considering choices), do the tram tour, go as soon as they open to avoid the crowd and on Fridays you can meet an astronaut...you're welcome!

    You may be limited in your experience if you have a baby/stroller. You have to leave your stroller for potential sticky fingers for the tram tours. Still fun for the kids.

    The Level 9 Tour isn't cheap, but a real tread for every Space fan. You get a lot closer to the things than with the other tours. I recommend not taking the tour during Holiday season.
