Apollo Mission Control Center Tours

Access Member Timed Tickets for Apollo Mission Control Center here

Reservations can be made for the Apollo Mission Control Room tour and are limited to the number of general admissions allowed as a benefit of your membership. You are still able to reserve your spot for any NASA Tram Tour through our Space Center Houston app once you are on site.

Please note that all guests are currently experiencing limited opportunities to visit the restored Apollo Mission Control Center. As such, we ask members to verify their plans to visit to Space Center Houston prior to claiming tour tickets.

*Abuse of the timed ticketing system includes and is not limited to commercial use and the sale of tours. As noted in the terms and conditions of membership, evidence that the benefits and privileges of membership are being abused, in particular online timed ticketing, is grounds for revocation of the membership and all associated benefits without refund. Space Center Houston is testing this new method of ‘member priority boarding.’ Priority boarding benefits all members so long as the system is used only as intended.
