We went here for the lunch with an astronaut on the Space Pass+ ticket. The former was interesting but with around 100 people was not intimate, although hearing the astronauts was worth it. The tour of the launch sites was all interesting and the Apollo and Atlantis displays were awesome. The best ting is the kids were still quoting snippets... More

This was a truly outstanding day that even my 10 year old really enjoyed. The tour is fascinating, the Apollo rocket inspiring and the Space Shuttle breathtaking. We even got to meet an proper astronaut - it doesn't get much better than that.... Nobody visiting Florida should miss it.....

So just to get it out of the way - a 40 minute queue to get a ticket was tooooo long, and they should have had more staff to deal with the line. The shuttle exhibition was excellent, loads of information and something for everyone. Loved taking the bus over to see the Saturn 5 rocket and there was certainly... More

Enjoyed seeing shuttle up close having actually seen launch on previous holiday. Great experience for kids even if not into space in a big way, as can get up close and see everything. IMAX film great, awe inspiring footage of planets and earth, makes us realise just how small we are, and how precious our earth is! As usual, food... More

Second time here, spent more time as kids older now. very inspiring, Atlantis was great, check out the damage on the heat tiles near exhausts! Food is basic, chicken, burgers, fries. But worth a day trip. Plenty of gators, and if you want the beach after you have Cocoa or Daytona 20 mins away.

Bough tickets on the day. Look out for discount vouchers in guide books at Hotel front desks etc. about an hour from Orlando using the quickest and toll road. If you do not spend at least 3 to 4 hours here you will not get full benefit of your admission. My advice would be to head straight to bus tour... More

This is a great place to visit. But you plan on being there a full day unless you want to miss some things. We had fun learning and seeing. Even those who aren't particularly interested in space, I think they would enjoy also. Souvenirs very reasonable and lots to see!

The Atlantis shuttle was so cool to see, but so was the Apollo 13 pod. We took a worthwhile bus tour to see the launch pads and the Saturn 5 rocket (huge!) that was narrated by a sometimes funny driver. So much to see, you could spend more than one day! Definitely must-see if you travel to Orlando, FL

If you're even only remotely interested in space or sci if then try it. It's awesome. The rocket room was amazing. Everything is so BIG. The bus DO-it-yourself tour is fab. Take your time and go at your own pace. There are the obligatory souvenir shops but that's good. Lots of quality stuff to buy. The space shop is fabulous... More
