Kennedy Space Centre

Where else in the world does history and the future, nature and technology, young and old meet for an unforgettable and inspirational journey through space and time?
The Kennedy Space Centre has hosted millions of guests from around the world for more than 30 years - telling the story of how the United States built a space program that launched men to the moon.

At the space center, you can also see how NASA has launched and orbited satellites that have improved our lives, and sent probes into distant space to solve the mysteries of the cosmos.

Visitors can expect to dedicate at least one day exploring the complex, enjoying its Rocket Garden, IMAX movies, space history exhibits, a full-sized walk-through Space Shuttle display, bus tours, restaurants, gift shops, and the new Apollo/Saturn V facility.

Other space-related attractions are available nearby, including Space Camp, and the Astronaut Hall of Fame.

Tips for Guests

Kennedy Space Center Visitors center is big - and has lots of concrete. Now in summer months particularly, the heat that is reflected off all of these concrete structures is immense - and you will quickly become dehydrated if you are outside and don't drink lots of water.

Please note that, owing to current security requirements, taking certain items into Kennedy Space Centre is prohibited. For full details, please see their site by clicking on the link below.
