Take a bus from the U.S. Space & Rocket Center for an exciting tour of the MSFC facilities, including stops at the Historic Test Stands and the Payload Operations Center, which is the science command post for the International Space Station (ISS) and Marshall's central research hub for propulsion systems and technologies, the Propulsion Research and Development Laboratory.

Please note that the tour includes multiple stops where guests will be getting off and back on the bus. Bathroom access is limited.

Description:  The VIP experience explores the US Space and Rocket Center with a well versed staff or docent guide. The guide will walk the visitors through the exhibits in the Main Museum (including the current traveling exhibit), Rocket Park and the Saturn V Hall at the Davidson Center for Space Exploration. The small VIP groups allow the guests to learn more about space history, NASA’s current SLS program and commercial space flight. To be with an experienced guide to ask questions and get answers of the how, when, where, what & whys of spaceflight history & the current missions to Mars and possibly back to the Moon make the visit to the US Space & Rocket Center more memorable and informative. [The current traveling exhibit is “The Science of Rock N’ Roll”]
