Amazing that at one point we used to be able to walk around the ground to look at the shuttle and rockets. Now $50 to even see them because they are gated . Also $10 parking fee.

I had a wonderful time today. The grounds are immaculate. The bus driver was Excellent! Stan had stories and history just rolling off his tongue. I learned so much. The only downfall was the service in the cafe but everything else was awesome.

if you are into space or someone who knows little about the space program this will interest you. The general admission gets you into many exhibits and the bus tour of the center. For the more engineering or science savvy tourists the are additional tours that detail specific areas of space exploration. Cost for general admission is about 50 bucks.... More

This is a must do attraction in the U.S. Only two countries in the world can show off their space accomplishments over several decades -- The U.S. and Russia. The U.S. exhibits are contained in three locations: the Smithsonian in D.C., the Houston Control Center, and here, in Florida, where much of it happened. The Russians have their single Space...

The KSC was excellent !!! Away from the crazy maddening crowds at the theme parks and half the price , $50 . Bus ride is 1 1/2 hours, driver was well informed and answered all questions. The Atlantis shuttle exhibit was the best of the best. Lots of exhibits, buildings, movies to enjoy at your own pace, spent 6 hours... More

Dedicated staff, immaculately clean complex and beautifully landscaped gardens. But this is NOT the only thing I'd expect to see in a space center. Tons (literally) of exhibits and most of them static, not interactive nor highly interesting. A full day trip (admission tickets + rocket launch pass + meal) for our family of 4 closed well above USD 500.... More

I've visited here many times over the years. It never disappoints.From the launch simulator (always a crowd favorite,) to the Apollo / Saturn Center, to the rocket garden, KSC is a great way to spend a day in Florida. There is a newly constructed Atlantis exhibit that is fantastic. Where else can you get up close and personal to the... More

We have made several trips over the years to KSC, but the last was several years ago. I am always impressed with how clean and well maintained the areas are and I will never tire of visiting this reminder of one of the greatest accomplishments in American history, our space program. The Atlantis Is remarkable, as nearly everything else here.

Kennedy Space Centre is amazing if your interested in space. My wife and kids weren't that bothered but, seeing the Saturn 5 up close can't be described, it is huge. they also now have one of the Space Shuttles on display which is interesting to see. Easily spent the whole day here although when I arrived I thought it would... More

As a Floridian, the space center has really gone down hill since they closed the space program. It's really unfortunate. This was my first visit since 2004, seeing the shuttles and other artifacts was still great. Seeing our Florida history was really a plus, but the best part was seeing Atlantis. This is a pricey, but it's worth a visit... More
