Trip Planner: USA / Florida / Brevard County / Titusville / NASA Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex
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. Tours sell out, so it's smart to buy tickets in advance. Plan to see NASA Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and other attractions that appeal to you using our Titusville holiday planning tool .
NASA Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex Reviews
It's an amazing experience to go there. We were there at the 26th of December, and there were not a lot of people so that was really nice. We had a great time! more »

One of the hidden jewels an hour away from Orlando, the Kennedy Space Center is jam packed with history, science and technology in a family friendly way. This place is so inspirational, your visit may help spur your little one to become an astronaut someday! The Atlantis Shuttle exhibit alone is worth the visit. Inside the exhibit is the space shuttle itself, hanging from the ceiling with its bay doors open. It is so awe inspiring, for a few of us, you may feel as if something is stuck in your eye. 😎 Additionally, you can feel what liftoff is like in The Shuttle Launch Experience. A great ride for those who dare to go! It's pretty safe unless you have major hip or back issues. There is the memorial for those who have lost their lives on the Columbia and Challenger shuttles that is touching, as each family has displayed mementos of the astronauts. There is an option that you can upgrade your ticket for lunch with an astronaut, too. The visit really needs a full day to take advantage of all the tours, videos and exhibits. The annual pass is a great value too. Food options are varied and reasonably priced compared to other nearby attractions. So if you're in central Florida and the weather is not good enough for a day at the attractions and you're looking for something to do for you and your kids, take the Beachline Freeway and within an hour your imagination will soar into the heavens.
This is a space-things museum. It's worth visiting because you take a close look to the USA history of space navigation and research. The bus tour is awesome and the driver made it even better, she was funny and gave a lot of interesting information, too. It is kind of hard to match a rocket launch date, but if there is one close they would probably have the rocket visible for people. The food had really good prices and it's very good. I enjoyed it a lot
