My big complaint about this place is the apparent lack of communication with guests. We found it and drove into what we assumed was the entrance. We felt the need to ask the woman who took our TEN DOLLAR parking fee what to do next. She actually told us to park , walk to the flag and wait on a bus. No!!! There was no one waiting by the flag. When we parked we noticed a place to buy tickets so we did. Then we saw a bunch of lines. We asked someone what they were in line for. They said to get into the space center ! So we got in a line. It was all very confusing and we still had not seen one sign or had one person tell us what to do. We finally get through the gates. And there is what appears to be the space museum. We have arrived without a bus. I asked a man who looked official about a bus? He told us which direction to go. It turned out that there is a bus tour that takes you out to the actual space center. You can drive by the launch pads etc. It took FOREVER to get on a bus. The tour was fairly boring and our driver was hard to understand. Then we are dropped off at a building with closed doors and the entire bus is just standing there. NO communication again. The doors finally open and we are in a room where there is going to be a video. It was pretty good. You have probably heard enough. My theme is I just cannot believe there weren’t people standing around telling you what is going on. The main part of the museum was very interesting but we weren’t able to see everything. I felt the $50 entrance fee was a bit steep since I assume it’s funded by us?

We're sorry to hear that parts of your visit did not meet your expectations and we appreciate your feedback. Did you know that the visitor complex is not funded by U.S. tax dollars? Instead, it is funded by visitor-generated revenue to maintain and augment the exhibits that are offered to visitors, including the actual space shuttle Atlantis and other space artifacts.

I had a great time here

It was very educational for me, and seeing the space shuttle and moon rocket was a highlight for me

There are shows to keep younger kids interested

There are enough exhibits to keep you occupied for the whole day.

As a bonus it’s in a natural park with lots of wildlife, including alligators.

An amazing day for kids and adults. Boys ages 11 and 13 and two adults spent the day. So much to do and we loved it all. We did spend an entire day (9-5). It was worth the drive from Orlando and worth the cost. I would recommend this to families. My boys were the perfect age but I don't think toddlers or young children would stay interested long enough for adults to get the full enjoyment. Lunch was $40 and worth it. Great meal.

I remember going there as a small child and being in awe of all the moon landing information. Maybe it’s because NASA hasn’t achieved much in space lately that there are no particularly interesting exhibits. We found it too dull and too hot as not much of it is shaded. The bus tour had too long a queue for us so we left without seeing a lot of what we’d come for. I won’t be in a hurry to return.
