Amazing Experience! Loved seeing and hearing about where they started and learning about the new Orion program. We did this as part of a Shore Excursion from our cruise. Wish we could have stayed longer. Our Son loved the Launch Simulator! The downfall was that we were there during school trips and due to our short time allowed we had... More

Totally enjoyed The Kennedy Space Center, with all of the Museum exhibits, information and history of Outer Space travel. I've always been a Sci-Fi buff, and this was seeing the real stuff up close and in person. I loved it.

Ok space fans, get ready to stand up and cheer. This tour will take you at least five hours to fully see all the exhibits and IMaxx movies. It is truly astonishing what the United States has done in space and here on earth. When you see the Shuttle Atlantis on display, you will cry.

A very fun and relaxing trip to Kennedy Space Center. Staff was informative and the tours interesting. The imax movie was excellent. I was so glad we went. Only was there for a day but if you want to see everything, get there right when they open. It can fill your whole day. The Atlantis exhibit was the best. A... More

Its a must visit. So many thing to do here. To start with the bus ride to launch pads and then the rocket museum is amazing. Then the 3D shows in IMAX theaters are great. Then the moon mission history show, the discover shuttle museum everything is great here.

We arrived at NASA and the exhibition seems to be deliberately organized in a way that gives an ever increasing level of incredibility as you progress through the exhibits... The icing on the cake is certainly when you turn into the hall containing the famous Saturn V rocket - mindblowing to say the least! Being of an age when I... More

It is really amazing to see what pioneers have achieved in times where computers didn't exist..how dreams can become true with the teamwork of a bunch of very talented people and a great leadership! You will also get an update on all the future missions including the Orion SLS that is leaving..today! Consider approximately 6 to 7 hours to visit... More

to see all there is to see. There are lines for the buses to the launch pads and Saturn rocket building, but be patient and enjoy it. We saw the space shuttle Atlantis building last and that was the highlight of the complex... see it last. Must do experience... my kids enjoyed it more than the mouse parks.
