With more than 10 installations and attractions for your crew to enjoy, the Space Center is getting in the holiday spirit early.

"We want to recognize and celebrate everything that's going on in space exploration. It's been an incredible year from launches to missions to new achievements," says Keesha Bullock, the Chief Communications and Marketing Officer. "This is Space City, right? And we also want to provide a wonderful holiday tradition that people can come back to again and again with their friends and loved ones."

Galaxy Lights welcomes all ages, and it's more than just light displays. Attendees can enjoy interactive exhibits like the Light Pods, hands-on activities, and a chance to learn how astronauts celebrate the holiday while they're in space.

One thing Bullock suggests visitors don't miss out on is the Kinetic Light show, as it's customized every year to give guests a new experience.

"We want to grow it every year, to get new installations, to get things that are more dynamic and dazzling that you can't find anywhere else," Bullock said.
