What You Can Expect

Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral

Dine with an Astronaut on the Space Pass Plus

The greatest space adventure on Earth begins at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. 

The journey starts in the Atlantis theater with a close-up view of Space Shuttle Atlantis and more than 60 interactive exhibits. It's a moving celebration of humankind’s greatest achievements. Then in the Shuttle Launch Experience, discover the sights, sounds and feelings of a real Space Shuttle launch. Buckle up and get ready for launch in a one-of-a-kind, custom-designed crew cabin.

In the Apollo/Saturn V Center, relive the wonder and excitement of the Apollo era in this one-of-a-kind exhibit that celebrates the unprecedented achievement of putting a man on the moon and the joy that was realized in that moment around the world. Also, take a bus tour past some of the most iconic NASA landmarks. Meet a veteran NASA astronaut at the Astronaut Encounter Show. Visit the impressive Rocket Garden, featuring the first rocket to break free from gravity, and reflective Astronaut Memorial, honoring NASA’s fallen heroes. Then learn more about what it takes to explore Mars at Journey to Mars: Explorers Wanted.

Finally, check out the 5-story IMAX theaters for breathtaking images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, plus an astronaut’s view of space in Science on a Sphere.

For the kids, be sure to stop by the Children’s Play Dome, a one-of-a-kind space-themed playground where youngsters can take off in a spacecraft, climb a moon rock wall, crawl through rocket tunnels and slide to the surface of the Moon.

Enhance the visit with an upgrade option to enjoy a buffet lunch with a veteran NASA astronaut. Ask questions, hear personal stories and have a photo taken with them. Also, go behind the scenes on a bus tour to view parts of Kennedy Space Center that most people only get to see on television, including the Launch Complex 39 Press Site, the iconic countdown clock, the 4-story Launch Control Center and more. Get exclusive (and rare) photos near Launch Pad 39B, where NASA’s Space Launch System will liftoff (replacing the retired Space Shuttle), and the Vehicle Assembly Building.

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.
