    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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. 👍

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

    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.
