The Official Visitors Center of NASA's Johnson Space Center
Press Pass Poilcy
Space Center Houston’s Public Relations Department welcomes all members of the media to visit. Press passes are available for those members of the media visiting the museum on assignment. Due to the center's non-profit status and the need to conserve resource dollars, additional passes unfortunately cannot be provided to those members of the press visiting the center while not on assignment. We appreciate your understanding and encourage any members of the press interested in visiting Space Center Houston at a reduced rate to check out the reduced-cost visitation options.
You are welcome to film at Space Center Houston during operating hours, but limitations are in place for the safety and consideration of our ticketed guests. During operating hours, we will be unable to close down attractions or block off areas where our guests expect to have access. We ask that production units are self contained. We cannot permit running cables or setting up additional equipment (lights, monitors, etc.) as they may pose a safety hazard for our guest. If your production requires special considerations, afterhours arrangements can be made, in which case a facility fee will apply.
Since Johnson Space Center is an active facility, there are a few areas on the tour with photo restrictions in place. Flash photography is restricted in the active mission control room, since the flash can ground controllers running a mission or training for upcoming flights. Tour guides will indicate when similar policies may apply in other facilities. Inside Space Center Houston (the visitor’s center) the use of photography is welcome. We do, however, request that you refrain from the use of flash photography during films and live presentations.
