  • Very good experience despite the very (too) high price of $ 58. (+ $ 10 parking). To do: the bus tour (theme missions on the Moon + giant Assembly building and launching tracks) and the expo on the shuttle Atlantis, which the American staging gives chills. Magnificent. Also take the time to see a 3D movie in IMAX. Try to arrive for the opening to spend a full day, no time to get bored!

  • Spent the whole day and saw pretty much everything. We started with the bus ride tour which was included in the admission. This was a great tour of the entire area which included launch areas, the VAB...  more »
  • The experience at Kennedy Space Center, is nothing like any other educational experience. The presentations were spot on, the 3D videos were amazing, and the bus tour was excellent. Totally a must-do ...  more »

  • This has to be one of the most interesting places I have been. If you like the idea of space travel then it's a must visit if you are in Orlando. We also did the kids challenge and a lunch with an astronaut. Well worth to keep the kids busy and very nice food accompanied by a funny and insightful speech from the astronaut. If you get there early like we did it is really quiet first thing. However probably due to having the astronaut lunch we were advised to do the bus your in the afternoon. We used the morning to do the close stuff. To be honest we should have spent a second day there. We ran out of time to do all that we wanted. So choose carefully on what you want to do if you want to fit everything in. Some mind testing challenges and great movies to view plus the launch pads and Saturn rocket to see. Don't miss the Atlantis shuttle either. A really good day out. Don't expect thrill rides but there are a couple of things like that to do. Highly recommended for those that like this sort of thing.
  • Amazing place to visit. Believe all the other reviews on how good it is. Plenty to do for at least 2 days. Bus tour is fascinating and you get a sense of scale of the place. Apollo is awe inspiring and Atlantis follows it up. Only criticism was that on a hot day you'd expect people to want to buy ice cream, so why only have 2 servers and a 20 minute wait?
  • Kind of hypnotic to see real rockets and shuttles, my eye kept getting drawn back. Great interactive displays which kept the kids interested too. Bus tour was a little disappointing, couldn't see as much as I'd hoped and struggled to hear the driver commentary. But overall there is more than a full day of amazing stuff here to do if you're even slightly interested in space!
  • If you have even the slightest interest in space or NASA don't pass this up. Plan at least half a day (whole day would be best) to see it all. This is where NASA shuttles and capsules go to retire. The best space experience you'll ever have. Don't miss the bus tour and Apollo/Saturn V pavilion. See the actual space shuttle. Amazing! Bring an umbrella if you bust in the afternoon.
  • The history here is mesmerizing! We all grew up watching the shuttles taking off from here but I had never visited the Center. It is WELL worth the trip from Orlando to see it. Good break from all the theme parks for kids to see some real life wonders.
