The world of space exploration and discovery awaits you at NASA Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Adjacent to NASA's Kennedy Space Center launch site, the complex offers a behind-the-scenes look at the astronauts' world through interactive exhibits, simulations, and guided tours. Take a bus tour to the observation platform at Launch Complex 39 for views of both launch pads and the space center. At the Shuttle Launch Experience, you can get a hint of what the astronauts feel when they're launched into space. Stop by the Astronaut Hall of Fame, and later walk through the Rocket Garden.

  • We absolutely loved this place. Loads to see, do and play with. Very interesting tours and information everywhere. The children loved it, I loved it and the wife loved it. The place is huge, so sadly we couldn’t do or see it all in the time we had, so would require a second trip. If we ever go back to Florida, we will definitely go here again and see the rest. So many great memories. Please go and visit, you won’t be disappointed.
  • This was our first family visit. We had a wonderful visit, Super educational. Highly recommend as it's so much history and truly something for every age. I wish I had more time to spend as could not manage to experience all the exhibits with kids and family. Everything, the movies are very informative. Shuttle Launch Experience heard it was good which they closed by the time we could get the kids from the bathroom but heard it was very good. Take the bus to the Apollo Center to touch a Moon rock.
