Days of Innovation are here with Space Center Houston Spring Break, when a lifetime of learning will lift off with robotics, rocketry and engineering March 10-18. Guests will discover flown spacecraft from the first and last crewed lunar landings, see and touch actual moon and Mars rocks, conduct experiments and explore space science through hands-on learning. Don’t miss your last chance to immerse yourself in the world premiere of “Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission” before it closes March 18. This blockbuster exhibit brings the command module from the first lunar landing of Apollo 11 outside the Smithsonian for the first time since 1971. Just for spring break, come tour NASA’s Neutral Buoyancy Lab, a huge indoor pool with full scale replicas of the International Space Station and other space vehicles, where astronauts train in a simulated microgravity environment. All of this and more is included with general admission! Enhance your trip for a little bit more and purchase a ticket to have lunch with an astronaut, offered every day but Sundays during spring break. Or take advantage of other learning opportunities such as day camps for voyagers ages 4-18 and our ultimate educational experience, Space Center University® for ages 11-18. The nonprofit’s spring break provides guests with views from beneath the wings of the historic and original shuttle carrier aircraft NASA 905. Participate in the new Family Campout program on March 10 and spend a night under the stars! Guests will build model rockets, explore robotics, train for spaceflight and more. Each day of innovation has something unique for guests to experience. Come out and see what makes Space Center Houston a leading space and science exploration learning center.
