We didn't leave enough time for this attraction as the park closed and we got kicked out. However what we did see for 30-45 minutes was very good. My recommendation is go here first, it's probably the best thing you'll see all day, and do leave plenty of time for it.

So we'll put together. My wife and I went there as 2 aerospace engineers and we both got a real strong emotion. The real plus is to be able to speak to engineers who actually worked on Atlantis.

I was very impressed with the exhibits! We had a great time and couldn't believe we had spent 3.5 hours there - it went fast and we loved the shuttle takeoff experience!!!

I had visited a space shuttle at the Smithsonian a few years before in DC, so I expected to just walk into the building and see if sitting there, exactly the same. I was thrilled to watch the video about how it was developed - as it taught me (and my students) a lot about the processes and the scientific... More

If you are into space flight, it does not get any better than the Atlantis building in the KSC. The lead in presentation is brilliant and the shuttle is spectacular. Top attraction in all of florida. Must do.
