The exhibit on the Space Shuttle and all the history regarding space development and exploration. Enjoyed the wonderful IMAX videos and the opportunity to hear and meet an astronaut. The bus tour of the launch sites is a must and you will be amazed of the size of the buildings, equipment and sites.

Went to KSC today with my family. It was my husband and teenage son choice and I didn't think I would get much out of it... I was so wrong. The exhibits and simulators were outstanding and the bus tour was grand. The staff were very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We bought to best package on offer which included a... More

Having been to Kennedy space centre many times over the years it was good to actually go around the old shuttle launch pads which are being upgraded for the next step in space travel, they even have a life size model of the capsule they will be using in the future, looks good. It is and always has been amazing... More

We saw this from the tour bus from the Kennedy Space centre and got to go all around it to see it from all angles. Very impressive site...I just wish we had been lucky enough to have witnessed a launch here.

This review is not for the KSC visitors center, but specifically for the Up-Close bus tour, which takes visitors out close to the actual launch complex pads. The tour (not the regular free bus that only goes to the Apollo center), costs an additional $25 -- but it was the best $25 I've spent in a long time. I bought... More

Finally, if you go on the Kennedy Space Center bus tour, you will have the chance to go on the tour and at no extra cost, go all the way to the launching pads! It was our first time back in a few years and were pleasantly surprised to find out that your ticket cost finally included the tour of... More

There is so much to see and do! Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to explore so many exhibits, things that are interactive, the IMAX (Hubble was beautiful and lasted the perfect amount of time).

Came here twice, the first was a bit of a wash out, as all the tours were full and the weather was stormy, so put the downers on the day. The second time was different, had researched and booked a tour in advance (even though they still messed up and cancelled the scheduled bus without telling us!), the tour was... More

We had a great time during our visit to KSC. There was so much to see and do! I was concerned that our granddaughters, ages 5 and 6, would have been bored. They were entertained the whole day. We were there from 9:30 until 4:00 and they never asked to leave or said they were bored. It was a great... More
