Overview of your Galveston tour:

Space Center Houston (SCH), sometimes referred to as the Johnson Space Center (JSC), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is the second most popular tourist destination in Houston (after shopping) and one of the most popular sites in the nation. Going to the moon in particular has been an inspiration and source of pride to much of humankind. We will run you around the complex to see everything possible in the time that you have there. We want to give you an out-of-this-world experience. Please be aware, that during the winter months of December, January, and February, heavy fog can delay the docking of cruise ships for potentially hours. We will be glad to accommodate you by extending the tour as much as possible. Space Center Houston normally closes at 5:00 PM. The drive time to Bush IAH is approximately 1 hour and to Hobby (HOU) Airport is approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
