Today’s Lunch Special: Inspiration

Every day at the visitor complex, visitors sit down to a chef-prepared buffet meal as part of a group and listen to fascinating astronaut tales about what it’s really like to launch, live and work in space, brought to life by someone who has been there. During the presentation, ask questions about anything you’ve ever wanted to know concerning NASA’s astronaut corps. Afterward, snap a photo with your new astronaut friend to capture the memory of a lifetime. Check the event calendar for the scheduled astronaut of the day.

Reservations are required and seating is limited. We recommend reserving in advance either online or by telephone at 855.433.4210.
