Subject: Re: Johnson Space Center - Houston
Hello Stefano,

Unfortunately Space Center Houston is about 40 miles from the Galleria area in Houston. My husband suggested that you could probably take a bus from the Galleria area to Clear Lake City and from there take a taxi to JSC. That shouldn't be very expensive. Another idea might be to check with your hotel. There may very well be tours for visiting Space Center Houston.

I haven't been there in years, but it's my understanding that you can spend a few hours there to a full day to take in everything.

Here's web site for Space Center Houston which might be of some help deciding what you might be interested in seeing the most.

There's a nearby restaurant called Frenchie's, 1041 NASA Pkwy Houston Texas 77058 281.486.7144

It is frequented by the astronauts and has lots of memorabilia on the walls. Time permitting it would be a fun place to have lunch. Frenchie's is an Italian restaurant so I don't know if that would be good or bad for you.

Enjoy your trip!

Chris in Pearland, TX which is very close to the Johnson Space Center.
