Enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres inside a historic shuttle carrier aircraft; revel in a reception under the stars surrounded by moonrocks and flown spacecraft; host your professional event among some of the most inspiring innovations of our time.
All manner of events have been held at Space Center Houston — large and small parties, conferences, team-building exercises, galas, corporate meetings, company picnics, private receptions, meetings, seminars, family reunions, showers and weddings.
We provide a worry-free hosting experience including customized service, your own dedicated event planner, catering from our full-time onsite staff, one-of-a-kind space artifacts and all the benefits of an indoor and outdoor venue.
