I like the updates and additions over the last decade. The exhibits were accessible to both kids and adults. I've always loved the Saturn V-Apollo building, but Atlantis just tops everything. The way they introduce you to the shuttle is just breathtaking. We spent a lot of time speaking with docents which was a tremendous asset & treat for our... More

This is a must see if you like anything about space. The history and the Saturn V rocket display really put in perspective how big it was and how much fuel they were sitting on and to come back to earth in that tiny capsule is surreal. The outside rocket garden is very cool as well.

Had a great time visiting the space center. It was raining and I was short on time so I did not get to check out all the exhibits. But the highlight for me was the Atlantis exibit. Very well done and I got goosebumbs during the moving of the space shuttle launch. Kids had a great time on the interactive... More

I had not been to KSC since the Shuttle program ended, but the Visitors Center is just as exciting as ever. The Atlantis exhibit is world class. It gave me goosebumps ! Also make sure that you do the Shuttle Launch Experience (it's not scary and is very educational), the bus tour, and IMAX. The food is just okay, but... More

I loved this place. I am an engineer so I love learning about all of the years of hard work that went in to the space program but this place far exceeded my expectations for coolness. This is one of the best places I have ever visited and I feel the $50 fee is totally worth it, even for only... More

I was so excited to visit the Kennedy Center, the reviews made it sound like a once in a life time experience. We drove down for an 'out of Orlando' day trip and popped into the Police Museum and the Astronaut Hall of Fame. As it turned out, the Space Center was the least enjoyable of the three. Dont get...

What a place! It's oozing with history as well as you can go there and see it being made with space x and other ventures like the sls program. The shuttle exhibition it's quite amazing and the introduction it quite emotional. The area is quite vast and they do a very good job in balancing the attractions and the real... More

I unfortunately only had 4 hours here and I really wish I had hours more there was so much to do and see. It was so interesting reading about shuttle missions and seeing all the different space things. I loved touching a piece of the moon that was pretty cool. The Atlantis exhibition was great, the way you are introduced... More

This was our fourth visit to Kennedy over the past 30 years. Since we last visited in 2012, the Shuttle Atlantis display has been opened and this would be worth the visit in its own right. An amazing display and the opportunity to get close to one of the real shuttles as opposed to a mock-up. The Bus tour was... More

Really enjoyed our day at the Kennedy Space Center. We were lucky enough that a rocket was scheduled to take off that day too, so we got to see that, awesome! Like everywhere though, a bit disappointed at the price of eating at these places. You pay good money to get in in the first place, then always get taken... More
