What an experience! My wife and I have lived in FL all our lives and had seen many launches from our back yard but had never gone to the Space Center. Our Georgia Grand Girls , 14and 12 were not familiar with space program history. What an experience for us all. The girls and their grandparents loved it. If you... More

A tour guide friend gave me a few hints....schedule a lunch with astronaut when you first arrive (if you can afford)----go first to see Atlantis (far end of park). This is easily 2+ hours. Visit all the smaller exhibits. Then after lunch, take the bus tour. Bus tour closes early and this takes 2-3 hours as well. When you return... More

The space center is a good place to go if you have a few days in Houston. It's really interesting with lots of things to see and do and you learn a lot about the history of space travel and astronauts. You get to go into part of a rocket which is cool and there are talks and films to... More

The whole complex is amazing, but I think it's something more geared towards adults or perhaps older kids that are actually in to space exploration. Our granddaughter, who is nine, was pretty bored I think. I particularly enjoyed the IMAX movie on the Hubble Telescope. Being the 25th anniversary of the Hubble's exploration in outer space, there are incredible views... More

We took the basic tour which got us in to see the exhibits. This included a bus tour and two IMAX films. It was fun for the kids and a good reminder of our space history for the adults. I would highly recommend this tour. Like most theme parks and attractions the food inside is rather expensive.

We visited KSC on May 22, 2015 after disembarking the Disney Dream. Surprised our space loving 8 yr old before we headed home to Virginia. We arrived shortly after opening and stayed till closing and was not able to see everything. Dissapointing since it was so expensive to get in. The grounds are very nice, well maintained and clean.

What an amazing experience to be in the place where they launch the real rockets to the space. All place is full of enormous mockups and real spaceships. If you like history and these "engineering-monsters" you can't miss this!

We had a fabulous day, this is a place all visitors to the area should go. We were very lucky as there was a Falcon 9 rocket launch which made the visit very special. We used Gray Line to transport us and we had a great driver who advised us on how much time to allow for each exhibit which... More

It was an amazing experience, see all the complex, the tour in the bus, and specially the magnificent exhibition for Space Shutlle Atlantis. In my personal opinion is a place you don't have a lot of crowds and also theirs a warming feeling from all the members of the stuff. Definitely have a visit!
