The Appollo Rocket exhibit was very impressive. It almost convinced me they actually went to the moon. Leaves no doubt they actually went into space. Given the science of computers and digital electronics in the late sixties was almost non existent. How ever that rocket was very very large. The bus drivers on the tour were very entertaining .

Very informative, awesome displays - just to see the size of the equipment used to move the shuttles , the building in which to store it/assemble it - WOW!! we are nothing but ants to the size...

Witness first hand the history of America's Space Program. The actual rockets which shaped America's Space Program can be seen up close. There are tours of the Kennedy Space Center and a reenactment of the astronauts landing on the moon.There's a breath taking 360 degree presentation of a count down to a Space Shuttle launch prior to the visitors being...

I blew this visit so badly; I under estimated the trip time, thus, we did not have enough time to do everything available (we will be back ;) ) To see, and touch, and be up close and personal with so much of our (The World's) recent space history. If you are in the area, and you miss this, you... More

We arrived about noon and unfortunately didn't get to see everything that this magnificent place offers! Get on a tour bus early, and make certain you don't miss the Atlantis exhibit! We traveled with our children ages 27, 23 and 8 and everyone enjoyed it thoroughly! We will definitely come back again, earlier, so that we don't miss out on... More

Spent the entire day, from 9AM to 5PM and wished I had two days. Worth the price of admission. Don't miss the Shuttle Atlantis launch experience or the bus tour that is included in the regular price of admission. Was a little disappointed that parking was an extra $10, but the other side is that it is not taxpayer funded.

Really impressed and blows your mind. Well worth a visit. It's a whole day visit we only allowed 4 hours! Stayed 5 and left so much out. We rushed around touching moon rock to viewing the Space Shuttle Atlantis - great!

Well worth the trip. The Atlantis exhibition was as good as anything at Disney! We had been there years ago but we thing it is MUCH better than before.

Good educational value for adults and children. Be sure to wear comfy shoes as there is lots of walking. Get inline for the bus tour early and it IS worth the wait. There's not as much emphasis on the moon landing as I'd expected. There are a few too many gift shops. This attraction was good, but I preferred the... More

This is the garden on display once you enter the Space Center. It shows some great rockets from the Mercury days and beyond and you can listen to the free guided tour for more educational information. Very nice display and great historical information. You can get in and feel what the capsules were like inside as well. All included with... More
