Extremely interesting tour of the facilities & presentation about the history & future of space exploration.
So glad we were able to reserve a spot on the free tour.
They open up a tour date months & months in advance & it fills up instantly!...More
Just went there for a visit but didn’t do tour because needing to book something or else to go inside but I was there just for visit. finding parking wasn’t easy.To see all the NASA has to offer that’s it till next time the tour.
Parking is terrible at JPL, but the tours are worth the pain. The museum and static displays are great for all ages. Getting to see the landers and satellites in person gives a much better scale of size than what you see on television or...More
When you book a tour and see hoe fast sits are gone you have the impression that this is a must see and hope you are going on a life changing event. Reality is completely different. They show you a home made quality movie, some...More
Fantastic experience touring NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory with my son who was doing an internship. For those without inside connections, one can book a public tour but beware these spots fill up quickly and should be requested months in advance.
I'd recommend first heading to...More
It’s a great tour. Other reviews cover all the details. If you love space exploration then this is for you. Get online and follow directions. It took us a few tries to secure spots on a tour and they’re booked months ahead but it’s well...More

Unless you will literally be in the area, not sure you would find the gift shop worth going out of your way for. It is rather small.Since it is a closed facility, you cannot walk around and I am not sure if the gift center would even be open if tours are not scheduled or if the guards would even allow you on the facility. You will want to call to be sure. If you happen to be there on the appropriate Thursday/Friday, you might want to check out the lecture series which is held monthly, You can check out the dates on the web site.
