We love exploring all the fun things there are to do in Central Florida. This past weekend, we had the opportunity to check out the Kennedy Space Center. If you are interested in science, history, and space exploration, this is a great place to experience.
Daily admission starts at $57 for adults and $47 for children aged 3-11. Daily admission includes the Heros and Legends Astronaut Hall of Fame, Space Shuttle Atlantis with the Shuttle Launch Experience, Apollo/Saturn V Center through the Kennedy Space Center Bus Tour, Astronaut Encounter presentations, Planet Play, Rock Garden, Journey to Mars, 3D Space Films, and Character Experiences. For additional costs, you can add on Chat with an Astronaut, Special Interest Tours, and the Astronaut Training Experience.
There are a lot of interesting things to see at the space center. One of my favorites was the Space Shuttle Atlantis. It was surreal to be in the presence of a real space shuttle that served 33 missions in space. We could also see the new Artemis rocket from a distance sitting on the launch pad which was really cool to see. We are excited to come back and see a live rocket launch. You can find more information about rocket launches here.
Here are some images of a few of the things we saw.
You might be wondering what else the Space Center offers, especially if you have children. Planet Play is a fully immersive multi-story play experience for children aged 2-12. It includes games, climbable areas, and more. Parents can enjoy coffee, wine, or beer in the lounge while they watch their children explore. There are also gift shops for those looking for souvenirs and a handful of dining options. The space center also offers camps and other educational experiences.
