With so many attractions in Orlando, the Kennedy Space Center often gets overlooked. If you’re looking for something new and informative to do in the Orlando area, this place is a real gem! Here’s why you don’t want to miss out on this educational and exhilarating experience:
By far the coolest part of the Kennedy Space Center is witnessing a rocket launch into space right before your own eyes! This is something you’ve only ever heard about or watched on television. Viewing a rocket launch from the closest public area is a once in a lifetime experience and something you will never forget. If you’re planning a trip to Orlando, or live in the area, check out their website to see the countdown to their next rocket launch.
Heroes And Legends
This wing of the museum is dedicated to NASA’s pioneers who inspired the nation to explore space to the fullest. The U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame® is a place to visit and honor the lives and accomplishments of American astronauts. Among this museum is a fascinating Rocket Garden displaying missiles, sounding rockets, and more. There will be plenty of walking so if you want to be as comfortable as possible think about renting a scooter. While wandering around, you might even run into a veteran NASA astronaut!
Behind The Gates
Included with daily admission is a behind the scenes look at the historic launch sites and working facilities. If you would like to get an in-depth look at the history of the property, consider booking a private VIP tour. Instead of touring with a large group, you will get one-on-one time with a knowledgeable tour guide. This way you will get a more intimate and educational experience!
Race To The Moon
The famous Apollo Moon Landing is an experience you don’t want to skip. Most people know exactly where they were when Apollo landed on the moon for the first time. Here is your opportunity to see exactly what it was like for everyone involved in its research and development. The Lunar Theater recreates the historic and suspenseful events leading up to July 1969. Apollo astronauts also share their emotional memories from walking on the moon.
Hubble Space Telescope
NASA’s first great space observatory went through many trials before it was finally successful.
Its first debut in 1990 was delayed due to the optic mirror not working properly. Thankfully, through five service missions, astronauts were able to save the telescope. After over 25 years, Hubble is still operating and providing information to NASA. At the HST Theater, you will learn all about Hubble’s configuration and its journey to space!
Orlando is packed full of theme parks and fun things to do. But there is nothing quite as interesting and nostalgic as experiencing Apollo at the Kennedy Space Center or watching a live rocket launch!
