One Small Step Turns into Giant Leap for National Automobile Museum

Mission control has never been more accessible. We are proud to announce that the Nevada Space Center is now included in your price of admission. It’s an opportunity to become an astronaut for a day and make childhood dreams come to life!

Once a traveling exhibit, the Center’s new Be the Astronaut exhibit features scientifically verified experiences once had only after years of NASA training. Feel as if you’re actually flying a spaceship, driving a surface rover in pods or piloting a lander with the assistance of 70-inch monitors, touchscreens and industrial–quality joysticks. Watch the entire cockpit come to life with animated lighting effects, game visuals and space sounds. 

While visiting the new experience, check out the space memorabilia, an actual rover and collection of space suits and artifacts from NASA missions, plus U.S. Apollo and USSR space programs. The Nevada Space Center exhibit is open during regular Museum hours. Magnetic swipe cards that activate the simulators are issued at the Museum’s admissions counter.
