This was one of those bucket list items for me having been a space geek since a child and always wanting to see the Saturn V up close. The Kennedy Space Center reminds all of us what humans can achieve when working together towards a common goal. My wife equally enjoyed the visit which features two primary attractions of the...

It was great I would go again in a heartbeat, so much to see got there around one and it closed at five and we didn't get to see everything, there's so much to see. Guides are great, friendly and eager to help. Will go back

It's worth spending a whole day for it and this center actually is at the top of my wish list in Orlando. During watching different films, my tears had on several occasions nearly dropped. I was so moved by the courages and wisdom of the people on earth. I can understand why Americans are so proud of themselves. The whole... More

The price is very reasonable, representing good value for money. The exhibitions are very well laid out and the staff very knowelagable.

Went with friends recently and all felt that for adults in particular is is the best centre to visit while in Orlando. The various exhibits and centres are outstanding and give an idea of the of the extraordinarily bravery of out astronauts. Would suggest that it is not really suitable for very young children as they would probably not appreciate... More

We spent an amazing day at John F. Kennedy Space Centre exploring what it is really like to be an astronaut. This is the only place to be and get a chance to see and hear what goes on at Nasa's headquarters.

This is more like a student's related center than what I was expecting. There was a long boring imax movie and an exciting "simulator" (atlantis) that is the most ridiculous ride I've ever been. All along with the bus tour completes the most boring space experience. I'm sure that this attraction has a lot of potential but...

My family & I went here during our trip to Disney World (we wanted to take a break). This is our first time there and I wasn't expecting a lot but something really cool! We arrived around 3p not aware it closes at 6p. I thought that the center was overall pricey! 1. Pay for parking-$10 2. Tickets-$50 for Adults... More

The Centre has a collection to offer that shows the way that space travel has changed over the last 50 + years. Some areas are very good but there is a lot of walking and few areas to sit for the elderly/mobility impaired. The Food areas are fairly good value for this type of attraction. The simulator is okay but... More
