Kennedy Space Center
Do you remember when you wanted to become an astronaut? Be a kid again and explore in childlike wonder the complex devoted to space exploration at the very place that landed on the moon with Apollo 11 and on Mars with the Curiosity rover. Located only minutes away from Orlando, the Kennedy Space Center is not an attraction to be missed when visiting Florida.
Here at Kennedy, there are several expertly engineered exhibits and presentations to keep you and your group interested and entertained. Get up-close with the space shuttle Atlantis, have lunch with an astronaut and ask him or her all of your questions, and experience the Space Shuttle Launch simulator to feel what it would be like to leave Earth’s atmosphere. You can visit the Rocket Garden and see real and replicated rockets, some standing 109 feet high. Watch a 3D movie at the IMAX theater or be inspired by the interactive presentations in the Exploration Space exhibit. If you enjoy history, stop by the History of Space Exploration or the Astronaut Hall of Fame.
A wonderful place to take a group, the Kennedy Space Center is fun and educational for everyone involved. With plenty of options for groups, the complex offers tours of the Launch Control Center, a bus tour of the complex, and exploration tours of Cape Canaveral’s history and of the famous landmarks of the Kennedy Space Center. Let yourselves be guided through the center and soak in the science, the excitement of imagination, and the thrill of discovery. See a space shuttle, touch a moon rock, eat with astronauts, and allow yourselves to be rocketed into the future.
Rediscover the magic of space exploration and the incredible tenacity of NASA’s missions into discovering the “final frontier” at the Kennedy Space Center.
