What a great job done here to preserve that feeling of accomplishment from the mid 60 ' s all the way through the retirement of the Shuttles

I just called to make a reservation for this tour and was told they no longer give the tours because of a lack of funds.

Don't miss the 45th Space Wing three-hour tour to the Air Force Space and Missile Museum, active and retired launch pads, and the historic Cape Canaveral Lighthouse. Go to the Patrick AFB website for more information. We learned about this on our last visit to the area but it was to late in the week to schedule. We made certain... More

If there is one place that makes the visit to Cape Canaveral worth the extra price for the ticket it is Launch Complex 34. Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Launch Complex 34 (LC-34) is a launch site on Cape Canaveral, Florida. LC-34 and its twin to the north, LC-37, were used by NASA as part of the Apollo Program to...

I really enjoyed this tour. But don't expect to see a launch pad that is actually in operation, and don't expect to get up to the top of the lighthouse. You can only go up to the 5th floor. However, it is still a great tour. When arriving to the base, don't turn right to the security and badge facility,... More

The tour is conducted by retired employees of the old Cape Canaveral launch sites. All baby boomers should take the tour (my wife was bored though). I would not take children on this tour - the glitzy Kennedy Space Center is for that. Seeing where the three Apollo astronauts died was sobering. We loved the stories the docent told.
