The Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral are working facilities where you can learn about the history and future of space exploration. The newest exhibit at the Kennedy Space Center features the Space Shuttle Atlantis displayed as if it were flying through space with the payload doors open.Visitors can see the Space Shuttle Atlantis up close and can get a feel for the complexity of the systems through simulators and interactive exhibits. Guests can also experience what it feels like to blast off into space on board the Space Shuttle Simulator. Other exhibits include the interactive Angry Birds Space Encounter, the Rocket Garden, the Apollo Saturn V exhibit, the Astronaut Hall of Fame, the Imax Theatre and a tour of the impressive VAB (Vehicle Assemble Building). To get even more out of your visit, consider participating in one or more behind-the-scenes tours and experiences. These experiences offer visitors an opportunity to get an up-close look at the daily operations at the Kennedy Space Center, to participate in astronaut training, or even to have lunch with an astronaut. Rockets launch regularly from the facility and are fun to watch. Check NASA’s website for the schedule.
