U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame, Titusville
(3.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
The United States Astronaut Hall of Fame, located just south of Titusville, Florida, honored American astronauts and featured the world's largest collection of their personal memorabilia, focusing on those astronauts who have been inducted into the Hall; as well as Sigma 7, the fifth manned Mercury spacecraft. Along with Sigma 7, outside of the building stands a full-scale replica of Space Shuttle Inspiration where visitors can enter the inside and view. It is operated as part of the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, to the east on Merritt Island.The Hall of Fame closed to the public on November 2, 2015, in preparation for its relocation and re-launch in late 2016 at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.HistoryIn the 1980s, the six then-surviving Mercury Seven astronauts conceived of establishing a place where US space travelers could be remembered and honored, along the lines of halls of fame for other fields. The Mercury Seven Foundation and Astronaut Scholarship Foundation were formed and have a role in the current operations of the Hall of Fame. The foundation's first executive director was former Associated Press space reporter Howard Benedict.The Astronaut Hall of Fame was opened on October 29, 1990, by the U.S. Space Camp Foundation, which was the first owner of the facility. It was located next to the Florida branch of Space Camp.

  • It is an attraction that is remodeling. You can only see a single part with some belongings of the astronauts of the Mercury-Gemini program. Outside there is a huge monument to the dead in the U.S. space program.

  • The Hall was extremely interesting, and gives a dimension to our space efforts that are not common to the surface that many are familiar with concerning the space program. It gives you an appreciation...  more »

  • We had a lovely time today (Tues) We paid a second night in a local motel to see this. We were still waiting for the noon opening and so were many others. The exhibits were really moving and full of thought to place the lives of so many women and men into recognition. We did find some exhibits were not open, manned and the chance to go and see for ourselves the Innovation Space Shuttle were dashed as it was closed. This was a gift from our daughter to be able to come to Kennedy Space Center, and the Astronaut Hall of Fame. So all in all, we had a partially great experience able to see what we could. Perhaps the flu bug got to some staff members and they were understaffed today and could not give the entire exhibit an opening for those who gave a lot to try to have a full experience. It still was a genuine honor to see those whom we grew up watching for the last 50 years. It was wonderful.
  • Pretty cool place, with a few interactive things for the kids to do. Most of the interactive exhibits were out of service, but they had a number of things to look at in glass cases. That didn't keep my two young children entertained long, but the entrance was free since we had taken the Kennedy Space Center tour.
  • This place should be and could be a valuable addendum to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex -- but it is NOT. The interactive exhibits and games were of two types 1) those that didn't work and 2) those with no guidance or instructions on why you were there or what you were supposed to do. Too much of the facility was closed off. The only staff member on duty was the person at the front desk who checked you through the turnstyle -- no guidance or suggestions, no handouts (a floor plan would be nice). If you are an old coger, like me, wandering along looking at the exhibits and reading the displays would be a good couple hours. With a kid in your group, it will be a race to see which comes first -- boredom or frustration. I do not know the politics of this situation but from the viewpoint of a visiting citizen, new management and a good dose of maintenance is needed. I'm sorry to say that. This facility certainly does not honor those it claims to honor. Bottom line -- don't waste your time with this one.
  • This is a great facility to view the numerous facts and our Astronaut's memorabilia! I truly enjoyed the many exhibits and displays! Sadly, this facility is located approximately 6 miles from the Kennedy Space Center Visitor's Center and the it's only open from noon to 5pm - but it's well worth a stop!
  • Wonderful Place to visit!
