Space Center Houston gets another consolation prize...but it's a BIG one (updated)

Via Facebook:
Today is a great day for Houston! NASA has officially transferred ownership of the 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA-905) to Space Center Houston. Get ready for an experience so big, it can only happen in Texas!
I wonder if this image implies that they will display their Shuttle mockup atop the 747? Update: According to CollectSpace, that is indeed the plan! An gantry/elevator will afford access to both the carrier and the Shuttle mock-up on its back. Cool!
