Too far too expensive, will only visit again if I could not find anything else to do in Florida, apart from the spacecraft nothing special.

Wow was what I said when the spaceship Atlantis was revealed at the Atlantis complex. I have visited Kennedy in 4 previous Orlando holidays and it has never disappointed. I went a fifth time to see the new Atlantis complex and was not disappointed. How inspirational meeting the Astronauts that had actually flown even the suited spaceman who signed the... More

There is great space history to be seen here. This was my fourth or fifth visit over the years. I do understand other reviews complaining about the price $50.00, it is a little pricy for what you get, it's not a theme park and not really worth that much admission for what you get then add in $10.00 parking. The... More

If travelling to Florida you must visit Kennedy. It's an inspiring place and just oozes amazing facts, events, pictures and sounds. There are some great exhibitions. Get there early and head straight for Atlantis and the Shuttle Launch Simulator. This will take a couple of hours but very worth while. Then go on the bus tour. About 90 mins but... More

After spending a week at the various Orlando Theme Parks it was nice to take time out to visit KSC and experience a completely different atmosphere. Our children are 14 & 12 and both my husband & I were a little apprehensive about their reaction to driving an hour for an 'educational' trip mid-vacation. We needn't have worried. As soon... More

The last time we visited the Space Centre it was free so we were interested to see how much things had changed. (UK visitors purchase your tickets online in the UK as it is cheaper than at the gate.)Most of the attractions that we saw in the past were still there with the rocket garden, Imax theatre and the bus...

We drove for an hour to this attraction after visiting the rides in Orlando and it added a different dimension to our holiday. We were able to confirm what we knew and learn some new things about the space programme. Always start with the bus rides and the 2 3d films at the end of the day but watch out... More

Real history in a part of the world dedicated to leisure. The whole family enjoyed the complex. We got to meet and speak to a real astronaut, got a great photo of the kids with a guy in a full spacesuit. My family walked round the rocket garden while i sloped off to the memorial. This was a welcome change... More

New Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibition is incredible! I have been to KSC before and while I enjoyed it the new Atlantis display just blew me away! We took the unguided tour and had a good look at the Saturn 5 Visitors center as well. Great trip especially meeting astronaut Jerry Ross (7 trips into space) not once but twice. Very... More
