Shuttle Trainer Crew Compartment Tours

Now everyone can be an astronaut.

This exclusive 30 minute tour of the Space Shuttle Trainer Crew Compartment will allow you to go where very few have gone before. You will receive a safety briefing and history overview and then you'll step aboard the Space Shuttle Trainer where our Astronauts trained for every Space Shuttle mission. You will spend approximately 20 minutes exploring both levels of the Crew Compartment. After the tour all participants will receive a commemorative keychain to signify that you have completed your training experience. To ensure the best experience, tours are limited to 6 participants.
