If you are headed to Orlando, be sure to visit Kennedy Space Center with kids! The Kennedy Space Center attractions will take the kids back in time and teach them about the beginnings of rocket launches and space exploration
At the Heroes and Legends exhibit, you get to see the first pioneers of NASA’s space programs that are heroes to us all. You'll also get to see the heroes behind the scenes of the Apollo missions. The U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame is here, and you get to see the early technology that helped Americans defy gravity in space.
The KSC bus tour takes you behind the scenes of the future and historical operational facilities at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. See the real launch site, launch pads, and other areas behind the scenes. My kids loved this experience.
There’s a lot to see here, and you’ll learn all about the space race to the moon that the U.S. finally won on July 20, 1969. This was when Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong were the first two men to walk on the moon. You don’t want to miss the Saturn V rocket, the largest rocket ship ever flown in space. Plus, there are many other great exhibits.
At this attraction, you’ll take a deep dive into our current mission to the International Space Station (ISS) and the future mission set to venture into deep space. See what the astronauts today will use for their future deep space missions and take a trip to the red planet in the Journey to Mars: Explorers Wanted.
Here you’ll learn all about NASA’s space shuttle program and see the famous Space Shuttle Atlantis, the iconic permanent home of the orbiter. Train like a real astronaut and learn how to dock and land a space shuttle using training simulators is a favorite of my kids!
