Kennedy Space Center

One of Florida’s most popular destinations, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex tells the epic story of the U.S. space program – from the first day through the present.

The 70-acre arena, a gateway to a working space center, takes visitors on a journey that’s both entertaining and educational, interactive and inspirational.

There are thousands of exciting things to explore. Visitors can stand nose-to-nose with the real Space Shuttle Atlantis and witness an actual rocket launch in person. Astronaut Encounter gives you the opportunity to meet a veteran astronaut in real life. The Apollo/Saturn V Center features an actual Saturn V moon rocket. There’s much more: 3D IMAX® space films, Exploration Space®: Explorers Wanted and many other interactive exhibits.

Only 45 minutes from Orlando, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex opens daily at 9 a.m. with closing times varying by season.
