This is amazing place! It is hard to see everything in one day, so my advices take two days. There is multi pass ticket, it is good option. If you are really interesting with space you will be satisfied 110%
Had a fascinating visit to the Kennedy Space Centre. Well worth visiting and very well organised. Worth the entry fees and provided much more than we had expected.

Beautiful facility, the tour was very interesting. Not just for science geeks! Great place to visit when you're in central Florida.
A lot to see and experience. A bus took us out on tour. Amazing how big ships really are! Very educational. Young children will be bored. It was hard to comprehend all that we learned!
