  • Believe the reviews. The service is terrible. For example the will call window is only staffed by 1 person at opening with a few thousand people. Why?  more »

  • This place is amazing! It was so cool getting to see all of the astronauts who have paved the way for others. To see the history of all the technology, and past rockets that were used made it that much more interesting. The best part was definitely the shuttle launch simulator. It is so realistic you feel like you were actually there. I didn't get the chance to go on a bus tour to the different launch sites at the Air Force Base. But I will definitely be back. O would recommend anyone in the area to go visit.
  • My wife and I visited the Kennedy Space Center Visitors Center on a Saturday in February 2020. We drove over from Orlando. The Visitor Center was very cool. It was very well laid out. The displays and experiences were very interesting and well done. The Saturn V exhibit and Atlantis exhibit were both very impressive. It was a worth the time and money to go. I highly recommend it to anybody visiting central Florida.
