We purchased tickets online for the Dec 4th Orion EFT-1 launch scheduled for 07:05 ($50 per person plus tax) with the option to be transferred by bus from the visitor center to the Apollo/Saturn V Center for a direct view of the launch pads ($20 per person plus tax) about 7 miles way. On non launch days, this bus trip/tour... More

Visitor Complex is adorned for the holiday season with a 41 foot Christmas tree, a giant NASA "meatball" ornament, lights, ribbons & bows. Then, the Holiday Rocket Garden Light Show, a choreographed light & music show. Exhibitions are great, plus you have a guide to explain. You can feel your pride, of the rocket, of space exploration. The people are... More

We visited during the first weekend in November and it wasn’t the least bit crowded at all. We even got special pricing on tickets by looking at the deals section of the website and placing a phone order directly with them for tickets. I researched many discount ticket options – but this was the cheapest. Getting here is an incredibly... More

It is really amazing to see what pioneers have achieved in times where computers didn't exist..how dreams can become true with the teamwork of a bunch of very talented people and a great leadership! You will also get an update on all the future missions including the Orion SLS that is leaving..today! Consider approximately 6 to 7 hours to visit... More

Seeing the real Atlantis shuttle is a breath taking experience! The Saturn rocket is phenomenal. One marvels at a the size of everything and the miracle of space exploration. I am not American but share the pride and amazement of what has been achieved. The IMAX Hubble 3-D film is a spiritual experience. The beauty and wonder of deep space... More

People who work here are all friendly and helpful as well as full of information. The rocket was scrubbed until the next day but everyone was so kind, no one seemed to mind. They kept us abreast of what was happening as it happened so we weren't disappointed - everyone was telling me they would be back the next day... More

Absolutely awesome. An unbelievable collection of space transport. Used and copies.The exhibitions are awesome and well documented. We went around with a guide but we would strongly recommend that you arrange with your guide to go around alone and meet your group again later. Our guide was no scientist and was often just wrong in the science of space travel.... More

I visited the space center on the 17th Nov 2014 with family, and was delighted as the exhibits and experience was as awesome and inspiring as was advertised. My main reason for making this review is to highlight the Gray Line Tour company who were hired via the Extended Stay America Hotel we stayed at on 8750 Universal Boulevard. In... More

You really need a couple of days to do full justice to this attraction. The guided bus tour is excellent in itself and most informative, but there is also adequate opportunity to wander at will to marvel at man's achievements in space. The exhibits themselves, from the giant space craft to individual space suits are fascinating, whilst the "hands on"... More

It never fails to amaze me how awe-inspiring Kennedy Space Centre is, especially now with the Atlantis exhibit. Definitely a 'must visit' facility on a holiday to Orlando, Florida.
