We had a blast seeing all of the past Apollo capsules and Atlantis Space shuttle. A must see for anyone wanting to see where we have been in the space program and what our future will be in the next 20 years.

We spent about 3 hours roaming the area, had a bite for lunch, watched some 3d movies and heard some speakers. But the true gem is hidden in the back where the space shuttle Atlantis is housed. That whole building is where you really have to check out!! Tons to do there.

My family and I visited the Kennedy Space Center on or first day of our family vacation. After driving over a thousand miles we couldn't wait to get there and boy oh boy the Kennedy Space Center didn't disappoint us. There was so man awesome things to see. When you purchase your ticket it also includes an admission to the... More

Second time at Kennedy and still haven't done it all - but that's fine gives me an excuse to go again. IMAX films well worth watching, talk by space shuttle astronaut was fascinating. Only disappointment was not being able to do the add-on tour Cape Canaveral Then and Now as it was sold out by 10am.

We really enjoyed our time spent there however I would not recommend the "Up Close Encounter" Bus Tour at all. 2 1/2 hrs spent looking at the outside of buildings & empty launch pads Save your $$$ on that one! :( "Lunch with a Astronaut" was interesting & something to do just to say you did it! Definitely ride out... More

Kennedy Space Center definitely is a MUST DO when you're in Florida. Highly interactive, interesting and educating. We visited the Launch Control Center - so cool!! Come early, one day is really short there. MUST SEE!!

Had a nice visit with 9 year old. Lots to see and explore. The Atlantic Space Shuttle and the flight simulator were the highlights. We had "lunch with an astronaut" which was more like a small audience. The buffet food was surprisingly good with many healthy choices. Spoke and met with Jerry Carr from Skylab fame. It was an expensive... More

What to say about a place that takes you alongside rocket launch pads, underneath a massive Saturn-V rocket and nose-to-nose with the Space Shuttle Atlantis?? Nothing but superlatives, that's what. Best day out I've ever had in Florida, and that includes the theme parks. Absolutely amazing, and I'll be back again someday.

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
