Designed for kids ages 3–6, two-hour Space Tots classes help youngsters engage with reading and science through space-themed experiments, Quirkles illustrated characters, and other kid-friendly content. The classes take place one Monday per month from 9:30 a.m.–11:30 a.m.

During a two-hour simulated space mission, participants explore recreations of a control room, a spacecraft, and a transit module. Click here for up-coming simulated space mission availability.

Challenger Space Center

Challenger Space Center is on a mission: to excite and educate its visitors about science and the vast wonders of outer space. That excitement starts as soon as guests walk onto the entrance's elevated gantry bridge to see a four-story, space-themed mural painted by Robert McCall. Then it's on to the museum, where the center's affiliation with the Smithsonian Institution enables it to offer top-notch exhibits, which range from a model of an Iridium satellite to three separate meteorite exhibits. Regular Family Star Nights encourage families to bond over stargazing presentations, a simulated shuttle launch, and other activities.

To immerse themselves in the space experience, groups can also sign up for two-hour simulated space missions that unfold in three spaces: a mission control room designed after the Johnson Space Center; the Spacecraft, which simulates a room onboard the International Space Station; and the Earth Space Transit Module, which helps crew members dock there.

This is a great place for school age kids to grandparents. Is is for anyone who is interested in space travel and more. We were there on a day without any school groups and we had a private tour which was great! As we are in the grandparent range, we remember all the early space adventures as well as the current ones. This is a great place to visit.
