In Cape Canaveral, about an hour's drive east of Orlando, is where the Kennedy Space Center is. This is a great museum that's next to the NASA launch site and is mostly outdoors. Here you can pass through the American history of the space race. We see (and can sometimes touch) the rockets, motors, cápulas and spacesuits. You enter into a full-scale reproduction of the space shuttle and rocket immense walk along the Rocket Garden. I enjoyed as a child of the visit, and I recommend it to everyone, young and old.
Available free with the ticket to the global NASA Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, the Kennedy Space Center Bus ride ticket is undoubtedly the most interesting part of the whole park. It is indeed a bus tour of the huge site, where you can visit the actual main sites where the history of space conquest was written from 1960 onwards. Launch pads, rockets, and all kinds of interesting things await you.
To the left of the main entrance of the gigantic NASA Kennedy Space Center near Cape Canaveral, the rocket garden is one of the most original and interesting places in the park. It is rather pleasant and unusual to walk in this well-kept garden surrounded by rockets and space shuttles. A great spot for a picnic.
Located just opposite the main entrance of the gigantic NASA Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, the IMAX Theater is one of those huge cinemas that could only exist in America! You can see sensational movies here, tracing the history of space conquest in great detail. We especially loved the Space Station 3D movie, which explained the advantages and disadvantages of living at zero gravity.
Located just opposite the main entrance of the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, the Shuttle Launch Experience is one of the most popular attractions on the site. It must be said that the organizers know what to do: after mandatory instructions, leaving your bags in lockers, psychological preparation, it's time for the ultimate pressure ... a simulated space shuttle launch! You count down and blast off! It was great fun, and it's not too intense, so children are allowed to enjoy it, too.
