Amazing day at an amazing place. Where ever you look, there is a peace of history. Old shuttles, modules, live astronauts talking to guests, exhibition of moon vehicles and astronaut suits, newspaper clips from the time first man step on the moon, Moon rock cafe, souvenir shop and much more. Outside, you can take a walk, see the Explorer, or... More

I pre-booked tickets and thought this would be a great educational day for the kids as we were aiming for a "non-Disney" holiday. I was not expecting to enjoy it, thinking it would be a half day. This was one of the favorite days of our trip! We went to the information desk just inside the entrance and were given... More

This was a wonderful Day. They have done a fabulous job of creating a relaxing low key environment. It is laid out well. Lots of facilities, food is Not too bad!!! A Wonderful Experience, we spent 8 hours here and usually can't stand more than 3 hours in a place

Wonderful visit to the facility. Kids loved the talk from an astronaut, seeing the shuttle was great and touring the facilities awesome. The simulator was great fun. It was difficult when one child was able to slide down the exit slide, yet the other was less than an inch shorter and she wasn't allowed to slide, adults weren't allowed to... More

The legend of Kennedy Space Centre was born together with NASA “go to the moon” programme. It is still an amazing achievement of humanity, the Americans must be proud of. I came there not by accident, but rather to show to my 12 y.o. son why it is worth to put so much effort at school in math, physics (instead... More

We visited the Kennedy Space Center and found it a very interesting and learning experience. The films they showed in the Imax theater were tremendous. It was in 3d which made it look like you were in the space capsules with the astronauts. Both films took you right into the space capsules and the international work station as they went... More

I had not been to KSC since the shuttle program started. There was a very well designed complex to house the space shuttle Atlantis and the intro to it is awesome. There are many interactive activities for kids and adults. You could easily spend a day here exploring we only had 2 hours after meetings so barely scratched the surface... More

Fabulous! Like a lot of visitors, I am old enough to remember those first, fateful steps on the Moon back in 1969, what a thrill to be where the story started. We spent a fascinating five hours there but it could, and should, have been so much longer. All the staff - from the tour bus driver to the side... More

This is a brillinat exhibition of both the past and present space age. There is so much to see and absorb. Recommend the short talk on early US rockets which gave a good background as to how the space age evolved. The bus tour guide was very interesting and linked to an exhibition centre dedicated to the Apollo programme. An... More

This place is awesome. Very far from boring. You can see how great was the space race and what NASA are doing for future space missions.Very organized tour. You can take picture to all places, and they explain you how the center operate. I suggest planning your visit on day launch.
