Having lunch with an astronout is highly recommended!!!

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!
Do the tour asoon as you get here, it will be in high demand

Long lines. Bring nice shoes. And sunscreen

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.
A dica é fazer o tour de ônibus logo no começo da visita para ter tempo de andar pelo hall da Apollo tranquilamente e voltar a tempo de fazer as outras atividades da parte principal,como a Atlantis
É uma excelente experiência, super recomendado!
