We had taken a wrong turn and ran into this litte gem. Was very interesting and the volunteer staff was wonderful. We left and encouraged others we met to go see it too.

Came here on our Cape Canaveral Then and Now tour with the KSC and I really wish we had more time at the museum. There is just so much interesting stuff here, and the volunteers who were there had both worked there during the Mercury missions and were full of great information. To actually walk into the buildings where man first got launched into space, to see the antiquated equipment they had to work with back then, and to touch the actual launch button that sent Alan Shepard into space.. it was all so awesome and at times overwhelming. Very cool place to spend some time.

Conducted by volunteers (some have participated in the early days of the space program),this tour highlights the USAF space program and early NASA projects plus some US Army programs. The tour is much more affordable than the KSC Visitor center tour ( this one is FREE) and one gets to see the artifacts from the early days up close. We saw the remains of a Juno II booster that exploded on July 16,1959, various rocket parts,and displays on each launch complex on the Cape. The highlight was the three hour tour out on the Cape. I will not go into detail, but will encourage you to visit and experience it yourself. Cape tours are only on Wednesdays and Thursdays but before makeing the trip, check their Internet site or call to make sure the tour is not full. It is very popular with space history buffs.

This is a very interesting display. Having been a teen and seeing the first 7 astronauts live at the Seattle World's Fair, this was a must do on my bucket list. My only regret is that I had not done this sooner in life.

Though this is a museum filled with space history and aircraft, there's also a flight simulator centrifugal ride that gives the feeling of about 5Gs. This is a great afternoon visit, as the summer sun can be a little overwhelming.
