We were in Orlando and decided to take a day trip to the Space Center. It was absolutely the coolest place I've seen in a long time! Real spaceships, real spacesuits and a former astronaut to chat with. The simulator was crazy and the IMAX presentation made me feel like I was there. We spend the entire day there. It... More

This by far surpasses the Smithsonian in WDC for space. Seeing the Atlantis was the highlight of the day. All the exhibits and information are so educational. Driving around to look at the launch pads not only offers a look at the launch pads but at the beautiful natural park that it is surrounded by. You can see alligators an... More

The imax films are very interesting and in beautiful 3D well worth seeing. The Atlantis Shuttle is on show and we were amazed at the size and how close we were able to get to the shuttle. There a lot of interactive games for all age groups including disabled visitors - not all attractions seem to accomodate wheelchair users. It... More

please take the time to visit this site. It will exceed your expectations. There are some many accomplishments in our space program that we are all unaware of. This will make you so proud of American know how.

If you were ever a 'space junkie' when you were little, this is the place for you. The exhibits are terrific, the 'mega tour' is awesome and the overall experience is absolutely wonderful.

A fascinating day out which requires more than one visit to appreciate all there is to offer. Do the extended bus tour as this is worth the additional cost of $25 plus tax each as you get to see everything up close and can get off the bus to take photos. Wildlife on site is amazing. Food average and standard... More

We went here for my son's 5th grade field trip, and had a BLAST. We did the "Overnight Experience". We got to meet an astronaut, explore the complex after hours, and sleep under the Space Shuttle Atlantis. The next day we were on our own, and went on the bus tour and the Saturn V complex. There is so much... More

Once you have toured the Kennedy Space Center you become aware of the extraordinary courage of the early astronauts. Many have given their lives that we might experience and learn about a world beyond earth. These men and women give the word "pioneers" a whole new meaning. Don't miss the opportunity to explore space with them.
