Why locals recommend it
"Space Center Houston is a leading science and space learning center, the official visitor center of NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston and a Smithsonian Affiliate museum." It is a great place to visit for everyone, while it is a museum with lots of information to read. They also have a great tour to see historic spaces, as well as some rockets, and the space shuttle. Even for non tech interested people its a great way to spend some hours.
Tips from locals
Go into mission control, little rides for the kids. Take the tour! This to me is a must if you’re in the Houston are.
One of my favorite place. It is on the way to the island.
When in Houston, visiting the space center is a must. You'll regret it if you don't! Insider's tip! Save $$ on souvenirs by shopping at "Space Center Souvenir" located at 710 W NASA Parkway in Webster, TX! You're welcome!! 😉😉
You can’t come to Houston without seeing NASA. You can take a tour of Mission control Center and check out all the Rockets that have been to the moon.￼

“This museum has it all – a dinosaur hall, planetarium, IMAX theater, and butterfly exhibit. I’ve always enjoyed the gemstone collection. Parking can be a nightmare since the zoo is close-by. I’d Uber there instead.”
