Absolutely fantastic world class exhibit. The introductory film and build up to the final reveal was superb. Really enjoyed our visit there and it was great to be able to ask questions directly to some of the extremely knowledgeable staff who had worked on the shuttle programme.
I honestly didn't expect to enjoy this so much. This specific exhibit was amazing though. It wasn't at all crowded either, which was great. Possibly due to me going on a Monday morning. I reccomend this place to everyone, you will come away loving space again.
The sheer amount of history presented, and in the professional and beautiful way it is displayed, all with the honor and reverence they deserve, was awesome. My family, including my youngest (8 yr old) learned so much. For us, it was a reminder of the sacrifice of so many that, to this day, lives on in our memories and in our hearts. Highly recommended.
Amazing story told by amazing people! This is a must see for any Florida visitor and resident. We went to the Orbit Cafe and were very pleased with the quality and price of the food. KSC never disappoints!!!
Phenomenal. Hands down. This is the most amazing way to experience and learn about the shuttle program. The views are breathtaking, and the people here are incredibly knowledgeable on the subject. If you have a question, someone's got an answer. The simulator was really awesome too, it does full 3d movement, they lay you down on your back just like in a launch. Very fun experience.
