About
We are a museum dedicated to the space workers of the Canaveral Spaceport who built the rockets and launch pads that allowed the US to reach the Moon, and send probes to the outer planets. Most of the artifacts in the museum were donated to us by those now retired space workers to tell the stories of what life was really like working there during those times. We work to keep things exciting and personal with the opportunity to talk with people who worked there and to see what is new and coming in the American Space Program.

We had a guided tour with Travis who worked with NASA. He took us through the museum and gave us the highlights and peppered personal stories throughout. This museum is such a gem! We are a family of six and Kennedy Space center was just too much money but this was so reasonable. Also, my back was hurting from standing up a while and the office manager came over and asked me if I was ok and grabbed a chair for me. If you are taking a trip to Space Coast don't miss this!

I don’t want to say I was drug in kicking and screaming but a museum? on vacation? I was out voted...and I glad I was. The smaller size made this museum more accessible and personalized. Guides are former workers- our guide (Travis) was a great story teller and brought the artifacts to life. Whether proudly pointing out a metal gurney finished in his father’s garage by the very technical method of running it over with his truck or answering the burning question of just how astronauts go to the restroom, this is a great place to further your understanding of the vast team needed for the few to reach space.

You might be tempted to skip this if you have gone to the Kennedy Space Center and after you see the unassuming building that houses this museum. That would be a mistake. This is a great supplement to what you see/learn at Kennedy. The exhibits are not flashy and high tech, but the docent tour that we had was exceptional. Our guide was Travis Thompson and he had years of experience working at the space center. He was the one who closed and locked the door to the space shuttle so he had a wealth of first-hand knowledge about the astronauts and the missions. The stories he shared were fascinating. It is an experience you can't have anyplace else. Don't miss it.

Fantastic little museum with so much history inside! You could spend hours here! Anita was wonderful, toured us around and set my daughter up with a scavenger hunt that ended with a prize bag which she loved. Anita made all the difference- her knowledge and personal experience was amazing. Unfortunately Travis was not there, and we were sorry to hear he was unwell. These people are what give this museum life, they are incredible! This is a must-see, stop here before going to the Kennedy space centre. If you’re lucky you will talk to people with first-hand knowledge of the space program. Highly recommend!

I worked at the Space Center for Rockwell and Lockheed during the shuttle Program - first as an electroncs technician then as an Instrumentation Engineer in the Haz-Warning group. Visiting this place brings back a lot of memories for me. i highly recommend visiting this place when you are in Titusville or the surrounding area - worth the visit!!

This museum in Titusville is an absolute "must see." It is much larger inside than it would appear from the outside, so give yourself a couple of hours to see it. The volunteer docents are retired NASA employees who can give you an amazing tour and answer every question with their first hand knowledge. The museum has the original launch consoles and artifacts from the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and Shuttle programs, including a tire from a space shuttle. Many of the artifacts were being thrown out by NASA and were saved by the people now volunteering at this museum because they knew the significance of these items. There is also an interactive area for kids and a nice gift shop. It is open Monday-Saturday from 10:00 am - 5:00 pm and offers a senior and a military discount (with ID).

Our family LOVES the American Space Museum. It is not only a cool place to see rare space artifacts but also a great learning experience. It is fun for all ages. Our recent tour host was Travis. He had worked in the White Room during the shuttle program and had met many astronauts. His stories were amazing and I could have listened to him every day.

This museum is affordable for the whole family.

On this trip, I brought my 11 year old daughter and she loved seeing the Women's Gallery. It is very inspiring to show a young girl what is possible with hard work. She also loves the control room where they simulate a launch. That is always the highlight of our tour.

To the entire staff of the American Space Museum. Thank you for all you do. I can't recommend this museum enough.

Sadly, we did not have enough time to appreciate all of this museum. As I supported the space shuttle for seven years I was very anxious to see what was in this museum. The volunteer who guided us was knowledgable and very nice. Retired astronauts and Kennedy and Canaveral staff are frequent visitors. There are abundant children's programs. The exhibits are well displayed. Just a great place!

Small scale nasa type space museum. Very friendly staff and extremely educational place for children or adults that find cape canavarial too overwhelming. Quite and really tiny place that can be discovered in about an hour. Perfect place for kids under 6 and sensory friendly. Thanks to all of the Knowledgeable women whom have great passion for the center and take pride in their jobs! My son loved the lift off and controls center.
