If you like space you have to visit KSC. There are many great aspects for visitors - Space Shuttle Atlantis, Shuttle Launch Experience, the Apollo and Saturn rockets and the two IMAX movies. Less good was the Angry Birds experience, the catering and the monotone bus driver/guide. You will need 4-5 hours and this can be a bit too long... More

Went to Ksc more than 10 years after the first visit and it was beautiful. A lot of things to see: Atlantis, the IMAX movies and the Angry Bird space. Tip: do not do the "up close-behind the scene" tour. It was a waste of time and money and very boring. Much much better the standard tour.

Nice easy day -- relaxing to walk around to which attractions you'd like to see. Only complaint was the Shuttle simulation -- a bit disappointing considering all the build-up.

We hadn't been to the JFK Space Center for many years, and we were amazed at all the new attractions that had been added in just a few years. It seemed like there were at least 2 or 3 additional exhibits that we hadn't seen before, plus the bus tour took us in and around the launch pads and the... More

It is a little pricey and I suggest you buy your tickets ahead of time because all the little extra exhibits that they offer will be sold out. The ticket price includes a bus ride around the center it is long, so I would do that first that way you can enjoy the rest of the place without feeling stuck... More

Quite a good visit. Something for all ages. Worth a visit as it is reasonably priced and there is lots to do.

Only regret is we should have planned 2 days there to get to see it all. Make sure to do the Shuttle bus tour, and the Angry birds thing was SO FUN!

Great place to go. Definitely go to the Astronaut encounter, Atlantic, imax movie, bus tour to apollo and gemini rockets. We spent the entire day there and it was amazing how big the place is. You could easily spend 2 days here if you take the extended tours to the launch pads.

We have been to Kennedy Space Center 10 times in our three visits to Florida. We even bought an annual pass as it worked out cheaper and allowed us entry to the launch of Juno in 2011. We saw another launch in 2013. It is an awesome experience and I would strongly recommend it. The first visit was for the... More

My wife and I took our 5 kids to the space center yesterday and had a wonderful time. The place is extremely clean and the attractions are great. I would plan for an entire day easily. I would suggest a upgraded bus tour. We took the up close tour and went out to the launch pads. It was very informative.... More
