Did we visit the same place? HUGE disappointment. Might be worth it if it was free... Hard to believe Disney helped design it.Middle age male07-19-09

Very Good
We visited Space Center Houston this past weekend with some friends from out of town. Being a native Houstonian I braced myself for another boring trip into the past. To my surprise Space Center Houston in no way resembled the dark and dusty NASA of my youth. I found this facility to be bright and exciting with more than just “Space Stuff”. Don’t get me wrong; my husband and his friend took the 90 minute tram ride to NASA’s Johnson Space Center and were like little boys as they talked of seeing the “Apollo Era” mission control as well as the other astronaut training facilities. But the real heart of Space Center Houston was the wide variety of family friendly activities. From the IMAX to the hands-on experiences to the massive children’s play structure Space Center Houston is not “my mothers NASA”! I would encourage everyone to do as we did, and see it again “for the first time”! Middle age female02-24-05
