The Official Visitors Center of NASA's Johnson Space Center
NASA Tram Tour
Take a look behind the scenes on a guided tram tour of NASA’s Johnson Space Center. You can visit the historic Mission Control Center, Hangar X, and the Space Vehicle Mock-up Facility. Before returning to Space Center Houston, you have an optional stop at Rocket Park, home of the massive rockets used in the earliest days of the space program.
At the end of the Tram Tour, visitors pass by the Astronaut Memorial Grove at the Johnson Space Center. The grove consists of live oaks and shumard red oaks planted in honor of astronauts who have died. Seven oaks were added to the stand of trees following the loss of the Columbia crew on February 1, 2003. Occasionally, the tram tour may visit the other facilities, such as the Jake Garn Shuttle Mission Simulators or the Sonny Carter Training Facility. You may even get to see astronauts training for the upcoming missions. The buildings visited on the tram tour are real working areas of Johnson Space Center and are subject to close without notice.
