NASA Visitor Centers boldly go where most other museums and entertainment venues have not gone before: provide unique family ‘edutainment’ in world class facilities that not only showcase NASA’s rich history with its diversified collection of priceless space artifacts, but offer quality family entertainment offerings with wildly interactive exhibitions, engaging well-themed shows and demonstrations as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes tours.

As the nation’s space program turns 50 this year, along with the recent successful Mars landing, nearly four million visitors from around the world are drawn -now more than ever- to the nation’s 10 visitor centers that are conveniently located in major metropolitan cities from coast to coast including California, Florida and Houston.

“Each center offers one-of-a-kind family experiences that entertain, inspire and educate,” said Roger Bornstein, director of marketing for Space Center Houston. “Millions of visitors are drawn to them, and it gives our sponsors exclusive opportunities that other venues just can’t offer.”

The NASA Visitor Centers include Kennedy Space Center in Florida; Johnson Space Center in Texas; U.S. Space & Rocket Center at Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama; Glenn Visitor Center at Great Lakes Science Center in Ohio; Virginia Air & Space Center at Langley Research Center in Virginia; Ames Research Center in California; Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland; Stennis Space Center in Mississippi; Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California and Dryden Flight Research Center in California.
