Great day out for all the family members. The highlight was the Space Shuttle Atlantis and the IMAX films- fantastic. You will need all day and try to get there early to avoid the queues!

This place is amazing you could easily spend more than just 1 day here. Very interesting with the theatre's you learn so much. The guides are brilliant and extremely knowledgeable. We didn't have time to go the Astronaut Hall of Fame as we ran out of time.

What a remarkable place, had a wonderful time, like going back into history. Nice facility at the Space Center and then we visited the Astronaut Hall of Fame very interesting. Will probably go back in couple years and have another visit.

We had a wonderful time. There was some confusion on our reservations. Once we received our vouchers from Viator, you must call KSC to reserve which we did. When we got there, no reservation. Luckily it was not full. Make sure you get a reservation from KSC as well.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Kennedy Space Center was great--but I could have brought the tickets for the same price there without the hassle of having to PRINT my vocher

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Really good day out - it was fun, interesting, emotional. Well worth the money, but the day went too fast. Loved the lunch and hearing from Wendy Lawrence was awe inspiring.
