This is part of the general admission tour when you purchase a ticket for $50. The bus tour will take you out to see the launch pads and drops you off at a building to view a Saturn V rocket. I thought the bus ride was OK, the driver talked rather fast and when he mentions buildings, you really cannot... More

It is definitely an impressive facility and the bus tour gets you fairly close. It weaves through the various sites and alongside the massive crawler used to carry the vehicles. Given that most of the land is a wildlife preserve we were able to see wild pigs, a gator mother and her brood, eagles, ospreys and other critters.

It was a cool experience seeing the launch complex. It's part of the bus tour which I would recommend doing first once you arrive at the Space Center.

I would recommend starting your tour with the launch complex, as you have to take a bus and spend some time at the Saturn V exhibit. Very informative and gives you perspective of the sheer magnitude of endeavours of Space travel. Good to see the emphasis on the ecosystem and preservation thereof. We got to see alligators and a huge... More

You can see, touch and photograph a piece of history. Sorry that I have nothing negative to write, and I understand that is what this space is for..

It's a great place to learn about NASA's history and the USA's space program. Expect to spend at least 5 hours there to see every exhibit, program and tour.

This has become a big bus tour thru the facility that is well worth every minute you spend I first came here twenty years ago. I liked the tour better then because you got out to see things up close but back then they didn't have nearly as many people.

It's a great tour and our guide was very knowledgeable and prepared. We saw the crawling area, the launching pad and the assembling building. The tour stopped three times so to have time for taking pictures. Very we'll organized! Perhaps could last slightly less but I guess they want to give the best tour for your $25 extra per person...
