SR 405 between Range Road & East Avenue SW, Titusville, Florida

The Basics

The campus is made up of several “mission zones,” all accessible with admission. See the Rocket Garden, filled with historic engine replicas and full-size Titan rockets; the Space Shuttle Atlantis; and the Early Space Exploration Hall, where you’ll find hands-on exhibits highlighting the pioneers of spaceflight and the global race to the moon. On-site bus tours depart every 15 minutes and narrate a two-hour route to several launch sites, including those used by the techy space explorers at SpaceX, and the Apollo/Saturn V Center, where you can navigate astronaut artifacts and walk beneath a 363-foot (110-meter) rocket from the Saturn V mission. Visit on a day trip from Orlando, or opt for an Ultimate Space Pass that includes a tour of NASA’s launch headquarters, lunch with an astronaut, two IMAX movies, the Shuttle Launch Experience, and free time to experience the center’s exhibits and galleries.

Kennedy Space Center w/Transport from Orlando and Optional Airboat & Astro Dine
Last time we visited the Kennedy Space Center was 25 years ago and lots have changed. We were glad that we had PJ as the tour guide. He was pleasant and accommodating since we had senior people in the group. His advices were spot on and we were able to make use of the time we had since we were not that fast movers anymore. We highly recommend this tour operator.

Viator did an excellent job. Their communication was great, very informative, our driver was accommodating, our vehicle was clean. They were on time for pickup and drop off. My families swamp tour and KSC tours were made better because of the service we received. I would highly recommend!

Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral Admission Ticket
Atlantis was awesome. So was Saturn V. Park was clean. There was a long delay getting on the bus, and tour guides did not speak clearly. The park's computer system wasn't working right and it took a very long time to enter the park. We missed some things because the park closes too early, at 4pm.

Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral Admission Ticket
It was so worth the money. So much I never learned or have forgotten over the yrs. From the rocket garden to the IMAX to the memory wall, I was in awe. I was nervous to do the simulator, but persevered and did it. Thank you too all the people who work there to make our experiences wonderful.

Go City: Orlando All-Inclusive Pass with Kennedy Space Center and LEGOLAND
Great for exploring the city! My husband and I got a one day pass and we’re able to do the aquarium, insectarium and butterfly and adventures in Orlando city bus tour. It was a FULL day, but we loved every second of it and had plenty of time for breaks and food in between activities. I would recommend the Go pass to anyone who wants to have some activity planned but is stillflexible

When to Get There

Because there’s so much to do, it’s best to arrive as close to the daily 9am opening time as possible. Closing times vary seasonally between 6pm and 8pm. The center is seldom crowded (except on launch days), but you can avoid large field trip groups by visiting on a weekend.

How to See a Rocket Launch From the Kennedy Space Center

To count down and feel the rumble of lift-off just a few miles away from a real launching rocket, you’ll have to time your visit just right, as only a handful take place each year. The visitor center offers the closest viewing stations for shuttles and rockets blasting off from the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral, and has four designated spots for lawn chairs (some of the spaces require tickets, which typically go on sale two weeks prior to launch).
