    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.

    Tram it in the morning if rain expected in the afternoon.

    The tram tour is the best thing to do here. Everything else is for kids.

    A must see and take time to enjoy this entire museum.

    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.

    Red tour! Ve con tiempo...

    Science and technology. One must visit. Rocket park is very special.

    Excellent!! Rocket park is wonderful. Saturn V launcher is really amazing. Must watch for all.

    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.

    The level 9 tour is worth EVERY PENNY.

    Great information about our current manned space program as well as historical information. Be aware that gravity is in full effect.

    Small but informative if you're interested in spacecraft and discovery $24 adult, otherwise not worth it

    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're welcome!

    "MUST SEES" never let me down. Recommend you taking the tram tour, approximately 90mins for a whole trip.

    Great fun. Flight simulator is awesome! Tram tour to Mission Control was great. Loved seeing the Saturn rocket too!

    A little touristy, but still a lot of fun, especially for the kiddos.

  • Ben-jammin B.

    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.

    Just enjoy the moment! All is good here

    If you're over 25, I'd skip most of the exhibition which is geared towards kids and get onto the tram tour!

    I’m not saying I have or haven’t been to space, I’m just saying that it’s something neither I nor NASA can talk about.

  • K. G.

    Tour prices are expensive.

    We can land a man on the moon but not load a tram properly.

    Deuser · February 15, 2014
  • Geoff R.

    Some great space artifiacts are in the Starship Gallery. Apollo 17, the last manned spacecraft to orbit the moon is there. You can skip the video and get right to the space goodness.

    amazing place to visit

    Kids will have lots of fun. Reach at least by afternoon to enjoy the tours

    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.
