  • Visited after the spacex heavy launch. Beautiful view! Each level is dedicated to a different theme. It's educational and fun for all. The staff is friendly and trust me when I say, their bathroom is modern and crazy awesome!!
  • Mostly a gift shop and observation deck for the public. There's a floor you can rent for a gathering. We didn't go up since we had a fairly large group, it would have cost is almost $100 to go up to the observation area and we were only in the area for a short time.
  • Love everything about this place. The films, the explanation of the port, it's history and how it is used today. The explanation of the space program and the best views of the area! Nice gift shop too.
  • Not a ton to see but what they have is fun and interesting. The observation deck has an amazing view. Worth a stop if you are in the area
  • Went to watch launch. Arrive early to get good viewing. Observation deck was crowded. Expected there to be someone to give info such as where to look & broadcast countdown. Interesting exhibits.
