Kennedy Space Center Tips
Get your copy of the day's schedule upon arrival.
Experienced Center goers suggest seeing the 3D IMAX movies for starters. "Hubble" featuring the – what else – Hubble Space Telescope is a definite don't-miss. Leonardo DiCapario is the narrator! "Space Station" is narrated by Tom Cruise! What a deal ladies!
Of course, if you're there to learn about all-things-space, you won't be disappointed.
While you're online getting on tickets for Kennedy Space Center, consider adding Lunch with an Astronaut. There are some things we only experience once in our lives. Perhaps a nice buffet lunch and photo-ops with an astronaut presents one of "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunities for you.
No worries if you can't afford the expense. The Astronaut Tour is part of your general admission ticket. After you meet an astronaut, you can feel like an astronaut! The simulated Shuttle Launch Experience sends you on an space trip that seems real from the get-go.
Tour the Rocket Garden for a look at genuine rockets from several space programs, including Apollo and Gemini. Continue your adventure by climbing in the space capsules.
Space Shuttle Atlantis is a relatively new exhibit. It is awe-inspiring to gaze up at Atlantis positioned 30 feet up in the air as if were in space. One of the robotic arms is stretched out like it's inviting you to come in and blast off!
