I first visited the Kennedy Space Center 30 years ago and was impressed then. There has been a lot of development since, and it's all good. Easy to get around, friendly staff, long queues at the cafe at lunch time, but fast service at 2.30pm.

It's a really interesting place with incredible spaceships. However, the website seems to be organized around selling more packages instead of telling prospective visitors what to visit. It would be nice to have a central place (website + onsite) that shows all the visit times, and the potential highlights of the trip. For example, taking the bus to see Saturn... More

When my husband suggested the whole day at Kennedy Space Centre, I was hesitant at first given we still had one day left on our Universal Pass and only 1 day left in Florida. Glad we did give our kids an experience they will never forget. Our youngest 7yr old boy was not as intrigued as I expected but our... More

It had been several years since we visited the Spacecenter and friends in Cocoa had advised us to give it another go. We arrived around 11am and stayed until 5 pm. We could not see everything they have to offer in just one day! There is so much to see and do. It is $50 pp and $10 to park,... More

Drove to Canaveral at about 10:00 am and it was just getting a few visitors in,spent all morning in the main part, then afternoon went over to the remote Site where the big boys are, and big is an understatement, Colossal maybe, I defy any one not to be blown away with the sheer engineering magnitude of these machines and...

This is just an amazing place and is suitable for all ages with loads to see and do. The Atlantis exhibition is awesome and very moving; you view a film before you go into the main exhibit and it is excellent. Here you can also experience the 'Shuttle Launch' experience, again, excellent, and there are plenty of simulators for you... More

This is a really interesting place to visit even if you have minimal interest in space etc. You can do/see as much or as little as you like. Lots of 3D video presentations, talks and walks, bus shuttles of the area and close up interaction with space craft. The simulated space shuttle launch was my favourite. There is plenty of... More

we spent 5-6 hours including the paid tour and enjoyed it thoroughly. The bus took us to the launch sites and that was quite educational. The tour ends in a huge place with exhibits.
