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.

exhibits for all age groups. Wonderfully done and the rocket garden and the access to the ships and quality of the presentations make this a 5 star A+++ attraction

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.

I'm not into all the space stuff but my husband wanted to go. So so glad we went. Guides are well informed and very helpful for people like me. It is a must do.

My husband and I are history junkies and he loves science so making the voyage to the Space Coast was a logical day trip away while we were in Orlando. We arrived around 10 a.m. and made our way in to the bus loading area. We had paid extra for the Up Close Explore Tour and it was worth every... More

The Atlantis exhibit was done in true fashion. This is a thing not too miss. Even my wife, who dislikes anything related to engineering, wanted the be an astronaut after visiting the Atlantis exhibit. Guides well informed and long history with nasa. Shuttle experience was well done as well. The only thing that needs attention is the clear direction to... More
