Produced by Eureka Exhibits and designed by NASA engineers, the exhibit aims to put visitors in the pilot's seat of a spaceship while providing a birds-eye view of real astronaut pretraining with the use of touch screen stations, artifacts and interactive simulator pods built to look like space capsules.
In the exhibit, visitors learn about the challenges and excitement of spaceflight- then apply that knowledge as they fly the spaceships, pilot the landers, and drive the rovers, in a thrilling narrative adventure to Earth orbit, the Moon, Mars, Ceres, and Jupiter.
Admission to Be the Astronaut is included with general admission to the Mayborn Museum.
Museum members and Baylor University students receive free admission.
