Space Center Houston, the Official Visitor Center of NASA Johnson Space Center, is one of the nation’s leading educational resources focused on the dramatic history, exciting present and important future of America’s spaceflight program.
Operated by the nonprofit Manned Space Flight Education Foundation, Space Center Houston uses space exploration to inspire wonder and interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
In today’s global economy, the need for workers with STEM skills is rapidly increasing as an important means to strengthen our economy, competitive standing and ability to address critical global needs. Space Center Houston’s mission is to address this growing gap by providing engaging exhibits, technologies and educational programs that open the doors to STEM fields for today’s youth.

Individuals, private foundations, and corporations can partner with us by providing grants for major initiatives like the Space Center Houston Challenge Fund, sponsoring exhibits and educational programs and contributing cash gifts to help us extend and expand our reach. Every gift, from $5 to $5,000 fuels our mission to engage, inspire and educate.
