After months of being closed to the public, Space Center Houston will reopen July 1.
The interactive, science- and space-themed museum at 1601 E. NASA Parkway, Houston, will have new exhibits, spacious outdoor experiences, and additional health and safety measures in place. The nonprofit will follow local and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
“We have been diligently working to enhance our guest experience while implementing additional health and safety procedures,” President and CEO William Harris said in a press release. “When guests return to Space Center Houston, we want you to feel safe and inspired through our authentic science learning experiences.”
Space Center Houston will have social-distancing protocols and special hours for vulnerable visitors. Guests will book timed admission tickets for entry, and museum capacity will be limited. The center’s theaters will be temporarily closed, but new live shows are being added.
Visitors will be able to tour the Johnson Space Center, see the new SpaceX Falcon 9 booster rocket on display and more.
The museum closed in mid-March and will reopen to members June 28. 281-244-2100. www.spacecenter.org
