    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

    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. 👍

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    Don't miss the NASA treasures room in the Saturn V building. It's full of actual artifacts, including an Apollo capsule that went through renter.

    The Cape Canaveral: Then and Now tour was well worth the money. I was totally able to nerd out here :-) . Really enjoyed my visit.

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

    Get here early. Slow parking cashiers. Slow ticket process. Slow guest services. Typical government workers, no urgency.
