NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center

Marshall Space Flight Center Bus Tour

While public tours of the Marshall Space Flight Center aren't readily available, your group can get a glimpse of it through an MSFC Bus Tour, aka the NASA Bus Tour.

Take this bus tour from the U.S Space and Rocket Center and your group will be able to see the Historic Test Stands and the Propulsion Research and Development Lab at the Marshall Center.

The Marshall Space Flight Center 'develops space transportation and propulsion technologies, manages Space Shuttle propulsion elements and science aboard the International Space Station and pursues scientific breakthroughs in space that will improve human life here on Earth.' This center is a highly important part of NASA's research and development.

The tour bus leaves daily at 12:30 pm in front of the main entrance of the U.S Space and Rocket Center and lasts about 2 to 2.5 hours. The tour is led by an official Museum Presenter, who will narrate your bus journey and explain 'the past, present, and future of the Marshall Space Flight Center'.
