NASA research center

It may not come as a complete surprise that among the cutting edge science and engineering firms in the Mountain View area, there is also the NASA Ames Research Center, one of ten such centers in the U.S. Make it your mission to visit the free, open-to-the-public NASA Exploration Center, where aspiring astronauts (and regular folks) can explore exhibits that include moon rocks, a space launch simulator and a mock-up of the International Space Station. The facility is a mere five-minute drive from our Mountain View hotel. The Ames Research Center is also very close to the Moffett Field Historical Society Museum, which has top-notch exhibits organized by era. Of course the main draw of any NASA base is the chance to eat astronaut ice cream, a surprisingly tasty treat found in the gift shop. Stock up, who knows when you'll get to your next space-age stop.

Address: NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, California 94035
