Its sad to see the decay at the location of the first American manned mission sites. You would think the U. S. Government would take better care of its historic sites. The workers at the sites clearly have a passion for it, and want to share their excitement for its history, wish the ones above them did too. Be sure... More

If you are in Central Florida and you've already visited the Kennedy Space Center visitor complex, or you're not willing or able to pay the KSC entrance fee, go just a few miles south to see the USAF Space and Missile museum. It's FREE and it covers all of the early spaceflight programs: Gemini, Mercury, and Apollo. You can also... More

This was interesting but had lots of reading. I was looking for more hands on things for the grandchildren...5 & 6. Not a place for them. For someone who is interested in the history of our space program then it is a very good fit.

Awesome experience and free. The staff there were a awesome and wealth of knowledge. They took my three boys on a tour and quizzed them afterward. My kids were blown away. Gift shop was not expensive at all. Best part staff informed us of a launch the next day and gave us inside info on where to watch. A once... More

A great free (donations accepted) museum showing the history of the Cape. (and the gift shop prices are cheaper than KSC Visitors Complex)

Regrettably, the fabulous weekly tours offered by the 45th Space Wing have been suspended indefinitely. The not free Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Up-Close Cape Canaveral: Then And Now Tour is now the only means by which to see the historic landmarks at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and to learn about the early history of space exploration. Nevertheless, it gives... More

I tried to see this museum during a brief afternoon port stop on a cruise ship. Just a warning to others - this museum has limited hours and closes at 2 pm on weekdays, and there are no cabs coming by on a regular basis. So plan accordingly.

Not well advertised but definitely worth a visit! This museum is run entirely by volunteers and they spent a considerable amount of time explaining the exhibits. An excellent compliment to the Kennedy Space Center.
