Informative day filled with awe and wonder, not for America but in mankind itself. We can achieve so much when different nations work together for a common goal and how far we have come in a short time. It just makes me want to achieve and do more for this planet of ours.

You might want to visit the JFK Space Center web site before you go -- it will give you an estimate of how much time you'll want to spend at each of the attractions. We didn't arrive until 11 AM, and intended to leave around 3 PM -- and that didn't give us NEARLY enough time to see and do... More

Just a great Day out and it takes a day to see everything and soak up everything you see. Must do dine with a astronaut even for the great food and chat with the astronaut. So much to see.

Don't forget the Imax movies like the Hubble. It is very important so give yourself enough time. We live close in Cape Canaveral so we have passes. We never get tired of the experience. Don't forget the Astronaut Museum. It is all very moving and meaningful. You simply cannot visit this coast and not experience this GREAT place. Thanks!

If you enjoy history you will love this visit. If you enjoy space you will love this. The space shuttle attraction is great, You must do the tour of the launch sites. The size of the rockets is amazing. This a a visit that everyone should do.

They have amazing exhibits,but their administration (especially ticketing), signage, tour design, and stores are way under par for any attraction, much less one that represents NASA, space travel, and accommodating families. From the first misleading sign about which booths sell regular tickets, (BOTH), the long lines are just the start to a frustrating day for families with young children. Lockers... More

Went to the space centre on the spur of the moment. The rocket gardens and I max are great. Then you have the opportunity to listen to an astronaut detail their experiences at NASA and during their mission before meeting the astronaut. Then comes the highlight in the form of the Atlantis shuttle. One of the most memorable holiday experiences... More

When I walked around the Visitor Complex, I was in awe of the huge spacecrafts created to explore the Moon, International Space Station, etc. We attempted to experienced as many of the shows, my parents could withstand. If you are in the Orlando area, add this to your itinerary. It will be worth your time.
