The moon stones were fantastic. An actual rocket is on display with access to the command module, moon rovers and G-suits were also on display.

I was lucky enough to attend a corporate dinner at the space centre. This was my third visit, each time something changes. Arriving in the evening, the car park is empty, walking our way to the park entry and seeing that magnificent view of the SST's Booster Rockets and Fuel Tank all lit up, positioned for an imaginable night time...

First off, at this date (early 2015) I don't know of any free bus tours of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. You can visit it from Kennedy Space Center as a $25 add-on to the $50 price of a general admission ticket. Is it worth it? Yes. Is it difficult to see so much of the history of U.S. spaceflight...

Loved seeing the shuttle up close and meeting the seamstress (yes even a lot of the outside was sewn together). Well run experience and can easily spend a day, didn't get to the second attraction that is included so can't comment on that.

Growing up, I used to dream of becoming an astronaut. Now, I can go to the Space Coast and see where my dreams could have taken me. Also if you go, don't forget to ride the Space Shuttle Experience. It's something you want forget.

We went to Cape Canaveral the day after the US government shut down, however we were still able to see and experience alot. We could not do the tour of the launch sites but had a great time anyway reall would recommend this attraction to anyone visiting the area. We visited in early October 2013.
