Elsewhere, Heritage Park Museum has a wide selection of displays showing artifacts from across the decades and telling the story of the battle of San Jacinto. Not to mention, how Pasadena helped immensely in the creation of a new, free Texas.
For the budding astronauts of your group, the Johnson Space Center over in Houston is only 25 minutes away and is a must-visit. The center boasts interesting attractions like counting capsules, astronaut trainers, a Saturn V rocket, and the Northrup Grumman Theater where guests can watch films of a real rocket flight.
