If you are in the area do not miss it. You will need a full day if you want to see the space shuttle, the VAB, the launch sites, the IMAX movies, the early rockets, the Saturn V complex etc. Young kids though would not enjoy certain things. If you have teenagers interested in science you can leave them here. Keep in mind that the various tours cost extra - not cheap. There is a great website that actualy gives you guidelines of what to do depending on your party , the amount of time you have etc.
