RV Picklers: Houston, the eagle has landed

From the bloggers at RV Picklers.

We spent just 3 hours this morning at the Space Center Houston, a must stop destination if you are passing through Houston.  Like Pensacola, we wished we had allotted a lot more time for this visit.  Aided by a wonderful website, and eager volunteer greeter, we charted our course to make the most of our time.  But again we left wishing we had spent more time learning about the history and future of our space program.

After paying a $6 parking fee, we spotted the shuttle next to the museum entrance.  We found a large RV/Bus parking lot which can easily accommodate the largest rig.  The admission fee ranges from $19.95 to $24.95, and like most attractions of this kind, it is best to plan your visit to start early in the day.

Given our self-imposed time constraints, we chose to skip the outdoor tram ride and focused instead on Starship Gallery, the Shuttle Mock-up, Astronaut Gallery, and featured film “Journey to Space”.  All the exhibits are very well documented, and many permitted you to get into the training modules, an actual space shuttle, or up close to the astronauts’ space suits.
