One hour from Orlando's Disney World and it's like taking a park ride but it's the real deal. Plan to spend the whole day at NASA seeing rocket ships, an IMAX Hubble Space movie, the original launch operations center, the Shuttle Atlantis, a bus tour of the whole complex, and more. A must see for every kid & adult -... More

Great to see the spacecenter for real. When I was a kid I watched the launches on television and I really wanted to see this. Start with the bustour and then visit the Spaceshuttle. Everything is well organised and we had a great day here. They also served the best coffee I had in Florida.

We came here in July. We came here without kids about 20 years ago. My boys (12 and 14) were probably not as excited to come as me (49, Vietnam and space are the big things of my childhood). Thanks to NASA for the military discount. Paying for parking irks me (that and high drink prices). We opted for the... More

A bit overpriced but really enjoyed everything. The exhibits give so much history and the photographs and memorabilia are amazing. Hard to believe sometimes. Favorite spot was the Atlantis building. Employees we talked to were also very knowledgeable.

We had a great day here with our 3 teenagers. Yes they really enjoyed it! The Atlantis exhibit was awe-inspiring and the memorial to the Challenger and Colmbia crew was emotional and beautiful. It's a great history lesson but it is inspiring for the future too. I highly recommend!

If you are visiting the theme parks for 2 weeks then it is worth taking a day out to visit the Kennedy Space Centre now that the Atlantis Experience is complete. Remember that it is a fairly long drive out from the main Orlando tourist spots so allow a full day, planning to arrive by 10am. Combining education, a celebration... More

You'll want to go to get up close & personal to a slice of America's heritage. The new shuttle exhibit borrows from their Disney neighbors with their dramatic presentation, and the shuttle experience was a nice way to top off the day

Nice change from theme parks,no crowds , no queues it great. I not really into space but the whole story is really quite inspiring. Gift shops not as expensive as the Disney / Universal cash cows , well worth a visit.

Had a great time. I would recommend bus tour first thing when they open at 0900, then hit up Atlantis, which is amazing and located to the right of bus exit tour. If you do as I mentioned you should be able to beat crowds and see rest of park. We did have lunch at the Cosmic, it was plentiful... More

Fantastic, interesting, well set out and organised. Fascinating to see. Even saw an Alligator! Nearly didn't visit but I enjoyed it more than any other attraction.
