Space Center Houston, the Official Visitor Center of NASA Johnson Space Center, is Houston’s No. 1 attraction for international visitors and the only Smithsonian Affiliate in the greater Houston area.

Discover the exciting future and remarkable past of America’s human spaceflight program set among the largest collection of space artifacts in the southwestern United States. There is always something new to see and do. With more than 400 space artifacts including flown spacecraft, the largest collection of moon rocks on public display and at least three major exhibits a year, Space Center Houston offers an array of exciting attractions for people of all ages.

A must-see is the new international landmark Independence Plaza presented by Boeing. It is the only shuttle replica mounted on a shuttle carrier aircraft, and the only place where visitors can enter both vehicles. The eight-story, multiple-exhibit complex gives visitors a rare glimpse into the historic shuttle era and the NASA breakthroughs and technological advances gained from the Space Shuttle Program which impacted future exploration.

The nonprofit Space Center Houston draws more than 100,000 teachers and students from around the world annually to take part in its extraordinary learning opportunities. Students train underwater like an astronaut and have fun with immersive, hands-on activities in year-round educational programs like Space Center University.
