Make your way to the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, a short drive from Orlando, then spend the day exploring this history and future of the United States’ space program.

Get your bearings on the grounds on a guided bus tour of the Kennedy Space Center, including restricted parts of the working spaceflight facility. One highlight of the Kennedy Space Center is an exhibit of the Space Shuttle 'Atlantis,' with interactive experiences that introduce the people behind this important NASA program, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the International Space Station.

Take a turn at the helm, feel what it’s like to float in space, explore a replica of the International Space Station, and more. Every day at the Kennedy Space Center, a real astronaut joins visitors to discuss missions and the personal experience of space travel, and two IMAX theaters help bring space travel to vivid life.

Continue to a Shuttle Launch Experience for a simulation of the space shuttle’s ascent, with a pre-launch briefing by a space commander veteran, then walk the length of the Saturn V rocket that launched some of America’s brave astronauts and honor NASA’s fallen heroes at the 'Heroes and Legends' exhibit featuring the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame®.

A must see!

Booking third party instead of directly at the gate was fine as long as you have your phone or tickets printed. Being far from a printer- my phone tickets weren’t accepted but a quick phone call to Viator was easily remedied. They sent the tickets to will call. This site is worth it for the history alone, but the inter active exhibits are worth every cent. The launch simulator was amazing. A must see at least once. My young adult kids we’re impressed- and that is hard to do.

Had a great time. I suggest to get there early. There is a lot to do. We didn't get there until after 1230, and we missed a lot. So arrive early. A great time.

Great imax features as well as the actual space shuttle to view. Great way to spend the day but would be better if open until 6 or 7 so everything could be fit into the day.

Frustrating
Claudia_J
, Apr 2021
It took one hour to get from the access road to entry as traffic backed up for 1.2 miles. Lines were so long that we didn’t get a chance to see much. Then when we called an Uber about an hour in advance by the time the facility was closing plus half hour no INE had come for us. It was scary . So while the space center was awesome we didn’t really get enough time to enjoy it or see much!

Thank you so much for your feedback! We would agree it does get busy during a holiday weekend and are unable to determine what those crowds will look like in advance. We try our best to inform guests in advance to arrive early so they can get the most out of the day. Thank you again and very happy to hear that the Space Center was Awesome!
