Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex
up to witness the return of human
spaceflight at Kennedy Space Center. After
nearly eight years, astronauts will once again launch into space from American
soil. NASA’s Commercial Crew Program has produced the next generation of
American spacecraft, the SpaceX Crew Dragon and the Boeing CST-100 Starliner,
which will transport astronauts to the International Space Station. See these
historic launches at the closest public viewing area on the Space Coast at
Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
More interactive than a museum, more inspirational than a science center, and more authentic and educational than a theme park, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers a mix of thrilling simulators, breathtaking attractions, behind-the-scenes tours, interactive exhibits, larger-than-life 3D space films, rocket launch viewing opportunities and more. A vacation destination like nowhere else on Earth, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex brings to life the epic story of the U.S. space program. The attraction offers a full day or more of awe and excitement for the whole family. Unforgettable experiences include Space Shuttle AtlantisSM, featuring Shuttle Launch Experience®; the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Bus Tour featuring the Apollo/Saturn V Center with an actual Saturn V moon rocket; 3D space films including “IMAX® Beautiful Planet” and “Journey To Space 3D”; Astronaut Encounter featuring a veteran NASA astronaut daily; Journey To Mars: Explorers Wanted; the Rocket Garden; and many other interactive exhibits, including Heroes & Legends.
