Kennedy Space Center

Daily 9am–5pm
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 at Cape Canaveral Admission Ticket
Ohh! The actual size if the rockets are astonishing. The entire space Center was educational, entertaining as well as historical. Many artifacts were engaging. Knowing what has failed and what has been successful gives a person a feeling of the magnitude of the NASA program.

This was honestly one of the coolest places I've been. It was educational and incredibly fascinating. The launch simulation was pretty amazing as well. I didn't get to see everything as there is just so much to see, but one day I will go back!

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).
