“What a photo opp!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

It is like you are standing in the history of the American Space program watching the seeds generate from Mercury to Hubble and beyond. I am optimistic for the future of the space program and enthusiastic for future generations of space explorers! Well done.

“this is where your visit should start.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

the rocket garden looks a bit cheesy, but if you get the visitors lecture, all is explained. some of the 'cheese' exhibits were actually Nuclear ICBM's requisitioned due to the Russian American space race. Suddenly it is impressive and interesting. follow this with an added tour of the launch pads where further information is given.

“Magnificent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

This rocket garden has been around for awhile, though was often forgotten as the park entrance didn't easily get you there. With the addition of the shuttle exhibit, the park was redesigned to flow through the rocket garden and the area was updated! The update is fantastic; lots of information, great displays, an eating area, and plenty of places to stop for pictures.
This is a great place for any space enthusiast!

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Huge giant rockets. You feel so tiny next to them. Makes you think how powerful they really are. Our astronauts are really brave to of taken the journeys they have. Hats off to those that have risked their lives and lost their lives just to explore what is out there. Lets not forget the ones on the ground with all the knowledge to make it happen.

“NASA Space Station, Cape Canaveral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

An interesting day if you like rockets and space shuttles but be sure to allow sufficient time. The bus to the replica of the moon rocket is close to one hour return which doesn't include the time you will spend there... The IMAX is great and well worth viewing. It was wonderful to see Atlantis and meet the man whose face is the last astronauts see before departure. He now volunteers with his former colleague. I found both to be generous and prolific with information and their hands on experience was most interesting. Ride the simulator to experience what take off feels like...
