    The KSC Visitors Complex is worth the 50 min drive from Orlando. Lots of exhibitions, places to eat, free wifi and great tours. The Atlantis exhibition is the highlight of your visit! Believe me.

    The Atlantis simulation, the bus tour and the "Hubble 3D" iMax was great! 🚀 ..a bit expensive - but worth it! Make sure to have AT LEAST 6 or 7 hours to spend. And bring you own food. 👍

    Starting point to tour Kennedy, meet astronauts and train in spaceflight simulators. The complex also is home to an IMAX theater, rocket garden, children’s areas, and the US Astronaut Hall of Fame. Read more

    Amazing experience! You can spend an entire day here. Go for the extended bus tour to see more locations in Cape Canaveral. Nothing can prepare you for the Atlantis exhibition. Pure awe.

    Most underrated attraction in florida. Came 2 years in a row and i continue to learn every time i visit. The Atlantis exhibit is STUNNING!

    It's great. Lots of stuff to see, explore and learn. Arrive early and start with the bus tour. Make sure it won't rain. 80 dollars worth your time and money. The tour guides are not all that funny.

    Great place to introduce space and related activities. Very children and family friendly. Hall of Fame, Imax and Bus Tour (Apollo/Saturn V Center) are very cool. Atlantis is awesome!
  • Jase L.
    Here is way too much to do here in one quickie cruise excursion... but I loved what I did get to do. The Atlantis exhibit and the way they bring you to it was so cool!

    While there are a lot of things to do and see (Saturn V, Atlantis space shuttle, Shuttle Experience ride), admissions is expensive. So plan on a whole day visit to make the admission worthwhile.

    A wonderful place for any age! I think it's a must see for any tourist. My first time there was at 14 and i liked it as much as Universal Studios!

    Very inspiring and exciting visit. The interactives are quite decent and the videos and simulations are super engaging. And so many real memorabilia! Excellent place to visit.

    Atlantis exhibit is a jaw-dropper. Make sure you see it properly via the main entrance & introductory movies.

    In all of my visits to Florida over the years, going to KSC was the first time I was genuinely impressed and truly mesmerized. Worth the trip!!!

    Excellent experience and a great reminder of the importance of the space program, both to our history as well as for years to come.

    Don't miss this one! Visit the museum, take the tours which will get you up close to the Saturn V rocket (used on Apollo missions), see one of the retired shuttles, and dine with an astronaut!
  • Christina T.
    The museum, scavenger hunts, rocket garden and more are exceptional, experiential learning opportunities for families, whether or not a launch is being prepped.

    Be sure to visit the Astronaut Hall of Fame just 6 miles west of the Visitor Complex. There's lots space memorabilia and simulators there. It's included with the admission ticket.

    We were lucky enough to see the historic last shuttle launch with the kids, dolphin jumping in front of us and even crocodiles swimming by. Great experience for kids of all ages.

    This place has changed so much over this years you could spend all day here having fun. Loved the new Atlantis displays and Saturn V complex.

    Book guided tours in advance to see best sights & arrive early to see attractions on days around launch. "Discover KSC" tour best done after launch, it can't drive by pad when shuttle is out there.
  • Michelle M.
    The Cape Canaveral: Then and Now tour was well worth the money. I was totally able to nerd out here :-) . Really enjoyed my visit.

    The Atlantis exhibit is a must-see experience. Well worth a return trip if you've been to KSC before.

    Film of a Gemini launch on a Titan II rocket from here is used in the film You Only Live Twice (1967) to represent a Russian rocket launch. Notice the palm trees in the foreground.

    If you're over the age of 11, the Shuttle Launch Experience is not worth the wait. You're at NASA, not an amusement park. Explore the museums and check out the Saturn V Center — simply incredible.

    Paying the extra $13 for the annual pass is a GREAT buy - it gives 10% off in the shop/Astronaut Training & Special Interest tours, 20% off on-site food, and more!

    Be prepared to have your picture taken at every point of the complex. Before the tour bus before the Atlantis building before the shuttle experience. Kinda annoying.

    On the pricy side, but absolutely worth it. Make sure you get a bus tour ticket too.

    If you have a large group and intend to eat at the visitor's center, the Commander's Club (season pass) is definitely worth it. Save 20% on food!

    You need to get over to Titusville for the amazing US Spacewalk if Fame museum. It's free, they've lots of spec hardware and things donated by astronauts. It makes everything feel more real. Do it.

    Interesting Fun Fact: When astronauts exercise on the Shuttle, lack of gravity prevents the sweat from falling off their bodies. The sweat collects in puddles on their bodies.

    Long lines on launch day like right now! Going on 2 hours to get into the area. Tolls on the way make sure you bring lots of quarters out of Orlando. Hoping for food options as kids getting hot.

    Ride our transportation from Orlando to the Kennedy Space Center! Be sure to ride the shuttle launch experience and check out the Moon Rock located at the back of the Saturn V Center!

    Some very nice historical exhibts but seems very overpriced to me. Also the "bus tour" is just a shuttle between the main visitor center and the Apollo center not a tour.

    Can you find where Yuri Gagarin fits in to the spaceflight story? Don't miss Atlantis in flight and the Shuttle Launch Experience!

    If you come late (once tour buses to the real Space Center stop going), admission is 50%. At least some consolation.

    Make sure you also check out the US Space Walk Hall of Fame Museum in Titusville for some other cool space stuff. It's awesome!
