  • This building is such a beautiful unique structure and definitely a landmark. Lots of exhibits and things to interact with. It also has a cafe and a gift shop. Great views on Port Canaveral from this tower. A must see if you are in the area.
  • Exploration Tower was a great place to visit, my great niece always asked to go and learned something new each time we went. I don't know what happened but all the floors other than the gift shop and the lookout are closed and they're only open a couple of days a week now. The girls working in the gift shop said they didn't know why it closed, when it'll open or what exhibits will be there when it reopens. Don't waste your time or energy going there the way it is now, there's too many other interesting things to see and do.
