As a retired teacher, I remember taking my two young children to Cape Canaveral in the early 80's. My husband, who is also retired from the Defense Industry, wanted to visit the Kennedy Space Center and so I agreed to the visit, thinking it would be much the same as I had already seen earlier in my life. Was I... More

We came in the morning and stayed there all day. What does it say? We loved it! As we came to Kennedy Space Center, first we take a walk around the visitor center and bought the tickets for the bus tour called "Up-Close Cape Canaveral: Then & Now Tour". Reminder for foreigners: Don't forget to bring your passport! Without it,... More

This being our first trip to Kennedy Space Center, we didn't have any preconceived ideas or notions about what to expect. Our experience from start to finish was a memorable one. Everything is top-notch and very professionally produced from the entrance gate to all the attractions and offerings. In the 7 hours we were one premises, we enjoyed the IMAX... More

I pre-booked tickets and thought this would be a great educational day for the kids as we were aiming for a "non-Disney" holiday. I was not expecting to enjoy it, thinking it would be a half day. This was one of the favorite days of our trip! We went to the information desk just inside the entrance and were given... More

I was initially hesitant about this visit, thinking it another over crowded, Disney-esque Florida experience. It was far from that. The bus tour of launch sites, and the huge number of incredibly interesting and informative displays in the visitor complex were fascinating. I'm blown away by the huge efforts we've invested in the space programs, the brain power that has... More

As a regular winter visitor to Central Florida (aka Disneyworld), I meant to get out to the Kennedy Space Centre. I had my wish when I went out there. The parking lots were a joy compared to the herding and over-regulating that Disney has. I can then park away from the megatruck and the bus sized SUV. The ticket area... More

Had a very fun time at the Space Center recently. Lots of history and things to do and see. The shuttle experience was fun too.

We visited in 2002 and since then the space centre has had many changes! Its a great spot and very educational for all of us. The best part was the Atlantis exhibition. Be prepared to spend the day, I figured 4-5 hours but you could easily be there for longer. Great day!!

We have been here several times, we never get bored with it at all, even though the space programme has finished to a certain degree, the feeling when being at Kennedy is one of joy and sadness, I can't really explain how it makes me feel. Each visit we take a bus tour, but this year we will take the... More

You must be old when? It took me back to watching all the space program launches, Neil Armstrong on the moon, Apollo 13 Etc. Thought everything was well done and very interesting. Would highly recommend. Wish I had taken my kids when they were younger.
