When you go to KSC, you don't just play, you learn in a very fun way! This historical site is where actual launches have taken place for our nation's Space Race. Come and see the huge displays in our museums and visitor centers. IMAX movies, ATX (Astronaut Training Experience), and a Rocket Garden are just some of the exciting exhibits.

There are interactive activities and guides to teach you about the materials used to get to space, the accidents which have happened and solutions to problems NASA has had. See our Earth and Universe in beautiful images. Schedule lunch with an astonaut and learn all about eating and sleeping in space.
