  • We spent a few hours everyday for 3 days at the Kennedy Space Center because it is my husband's hobby but I have to say this exhibit hall was my favorite. The 2 IMAX films were also good, better...

  • It's amazing to see the shuttle in real life. Your imagination is stimulated and you can feel the amazing things that were accomplished from start to finish. Fascinating history here in real life.

  • This was phenomenal!!! I went with a friend that had been before. I was interested in going thinking it would be a nice place to go with him. I loved it! To know I was only feet away from the actual Space Shuttle Atlantis, was mind blowing! Everyone with interest or children with interest in space travel should definitely go. The place was kept very clean.
  • What a fantastic day. So informative and the grandkids love it as well as myself. I would suggest backpack water and treats. Great information but I think children 8yrs and older. Lots of walking but great exhibits. Do the bus tour first.. Enjoy 😉
