Spent an awesome afternoon at the space center- highlights include visiting the mission control viewing and the Saturn 5 rocket. Bought tickets via TripAdvisor and saved some $ too.

This is an amazing experience and would highly recommend a visit is your in Houston. Get there early and go straight to the train tour that takes you around the centre it takes around 90 minutes it gets really crowded later in the day.
