The Space Centre should be on the top of your list when visiting Houston. As the first word spoken on the surface of moon was “Houston”, the city is home to one of the finest interstellar museums in the world. NASA’s Space Centre, Houston houses several incredible permanent exhibitions. The real highlight is, however, the life-size replica of the space shuttle Independence. Visitors can explore the flight deck and also check out the living quarters of the astronauts. Feel like an astronaut for a day after scanning the insides of Independence!

Open Hours - Timings vary according to the shows planned on a certain day

The Buffalo Bayou is a gorgeous 52-mile waterway that goes from Katy, Texas to Houston’s River Oaks area. There is a 10-mile patch from the Shepherd Drive to the Port of Houston Turning Basin, which is great for outdoor recreation. Explore the natural landscapes, hiking and walking trails. Also visit the beautiful Buffalo Bayou Park and the restored Waterworks Building inside, built from a 4-acre abandoned city water system.
Open Hours - Buffalo Bayou Park stays open between 6:00 am and 11:00 pm from Monday to Sunday
The Museum of Funeral History reveals mysterious traditions such as the burial of a Pope to the recreation of Lincoln’s state funeral. This macabre museum might be unsettling for some people but is surely engaging for all who visit. Not to be missed is the 1916 graveyard bus, invented to “eliminate funeral processions”. This bus could carry a coffin, pallbearers and about twenty mourners. However, the idea failed when the bus carrying all this weight in the back tipped over a San Francisco hill sending bodies, both dead and alive, flinging all across the street.
Open Hours - 10:00 am to 4:00 pm from Monday to Friday. 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday and 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm on Sunday
