Seeing Atlantis was awesome!!! The way it is presented is breathe taking. Plan to spend an afternoon here. The take off simulation was a lot of fun. We also leaned a lot about the space program. It does cost $50 a person, but I think it was worth it.

Hubby and I decided to spend a day here during a recent weekend visit to Orlando. I'd never been to the Space Center. Hubby last visited as a child 40ish years ago. He's much more of an aeronautics buff than I am. To get to the Space Center from Orlando you either need to take the toll road (recommended) or... More

We went to see the Space Shuttle Atlantis and it did not disappoint. The presentation was outstanding leading up to seeing the shuttle. I actually got choked up! The rest of the complex was very satisfying for space geeks like me, and the bus tour was fun.

we disliked not to have more time. A day is a minimum better take two or three days, there is so much to see and to explore. Take the self guided audiotour , availabe in many languages.

We really enjoyed a day at the center; the bus ride, the iMax theater, the exhibitions. Especially the Apollo and space shuttle parts are very interesting.

We were blessed with gorgeous weather and had more seating with shade been provided there is no question this would be a five star review. My mum is 82 and visiting from England - she is not used to FL heat and there was only one bench in the shade at the front of the visitor complex. We had to... More

We came here because we had an extra day to do something. We booked with gray line via our attraction desk. For an extra 10 dollars per person (max 25 dollars) they go to your hotel and pick you up. That's what we did. What they do is send out shuttes to each hotel (which requested the pick up) and... More

This was of course on the list of places to visit already when the Florida trip was planned. And it certainly didn't disappoint in any way. The complex is massive, loads of things to see and do. And even if we spent 6 hours there it was several things we skipped. Atlantis is a must see, could spent hours just... More

This isnt really my area of interest but as i was there, i thought i should go. Very plesently suprised by it, lots of info but not all reading, lots to look at. Factual but not to much. Different videos to watch and a bus trip. I would recomend this for all ages. Quite reasonably priced.
