    If you plan on taking the tram over to the Johnson Space Center (and you should!), get reservations so you don't have to wait. Also, bring a pillow to sit on, as the tram seats are very uncomfortable.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Start with the tram tour. To see both mission control and the astronaut training area requires two tram tours, annoyingly enough. Most of the exhibits in the main building are geared towards kids.
