This is a small museum consisting of one room with some exhibits inside. There are a lot of placards with information on them. A volunteer is around to answer questions. The place also has a gift shop inside. Outside is a missile exhibit on the road where you turn in to go to the museum.

This museum is only *half* of what you'll want to see for a full picture of the story of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The other half is on CCAFS, and is sadly only accessible through a pricey bus tour from Kennedy Space Center - that's the real Air Force Space and Missile Museum. What is listed here is the... More

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

Laika was a stray dog the the USSR strapped to the top of a rocket and launched into space and the earths... 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
