For over 30 years, Kennedy Space Center has welcomed millions of guests. It presents the fascinating story of how the US built this massive space program. Solving one mystery after another has changed our lives and impacted the world and the way we understand our solar system. Who ever thought we could send probes and satellites into space that could send us back pictures so clear and detailed you could read the numbers on a car tag. Despite history you also learn about nature and technology, why it was built, and more. Schools all over Florida love visiting Kennedy Space Center.
You may either view the space shuttle launch from your TV or feel the ground shake as you watch up close in personal at the Kennedy Space Center! If I were you, I would definitely choose the later, but that's just me! For security purposes, NASA has to limit the amount of passes for viewing the launches so get your tickets in advance. The tickets are available for purchase through Kennedy’s Visitor Complex. If you don't have the money for a ticket, there are also many great viewing areas outside of the space center, free of charge! So come join the Kennedy Space Center and watch a shuttle launch for free!
Does the Mariner, Explorer, Viking, and Voyager sound familiar to you? Ever wonder what the heck that's all about? Well now is your chance to invite the family to bring back memories and make some by watching how NASA came about and learn about the shuttles such as the ones named already. After your visit you'll know how the Space Center works today as well as how it worked in "the good 'ol days."
Kennedy Space Center has many gift shops and restaurants near by to pick up souvenirs for family, friends, or even just reminders of your experience! Watch videos about Kennedy Space Center's explorations on its humungous five-and-a-half story IMAX movie screens! Walk through an exact copy of a Shuttle orbiter! Don’t miss the real Moon rocks and rockets used to launch people or machines into space.
Kennedy Space Center is located about 35 miles east of Orlando International Airport in Brevard County, Florida.
So instead of an every day trip to an amusement park, try out something new and visit Kennedy Space Center!
