So what do you get for the money? ie what do they provide? I mean the Shuttle etc is there anyway, it's not like they had to have it brought in specially. Museums are free. KSC is a museum of space exploration.

The attraction is more like an educational day out and the bus tour is really great as long as you are already interested in all things space. The shuttle is probably held up in a hanger and most people won't get to see it. There is a replica of the shuttle there for you to walk through but they are hardly going to put a real shuttle in a theme park for everyone to abuse. The real suttle probably cost more to build than most Orlando theme parks.

It's a good day out as long as you are already interested in learning and all things space :)

That's right and as I've already stated, it's a museum of space exploration. What I don't agree with is charging people to enter a museum that they (the American tax payers), have already paid for.

it is nothing like just a museum. have you been on the site and had a look at what you get there ?
the new shuttle is due to launch on the 24th of feb and it is on the pads for 7 days before launch usualy so if you are furtunate to go around this time you will ge t to see the shuttle which is actually pretty cool.
If you are not interested in seeing this then dont go if you are then it is a lot less than you would normaly have to spend.

I hear ya mate. I really am interested and I understand that as a Brit there is a charge. I can live with it. However, my point still remains, why are American tax payers being charged to get into this place? The place was built and is run with US tax dollars! It's a bleedin liberty. They're basically having to pay twice. Imagine being charged to visit the House of Commons! You've already paid for it! And anyway, you'd probably get more out of visiting your local jail, although there won't be as many thieves in there!

Cold - As I can remember when this was FREE to visit.

I also remember going when it was free. That said its a great day out, and the trip up there has some really interesting scenery and wildlife. If you are planning a trip around a launch, email NASA and they may send you passes to get onto the base.We did that 4 times in the 90's and it was great hearing the communications over the loud speakers.Nothing like you will ever experience again.
#13
Some impressive stuff to see here. I love spacey stuff anyway, so this was great.
#14
bit far afield.
#15
The tour is a basic one, if you want to see the shuttle on the pad you need to do the close up tour, it gets you 1km from it which is as near as anyone is allowed.The free trip is ok but when we went last time paid for the close up tour and lunch with an Astronaut which was good but quiet expensive.The shuttle ride is very good.

If your heading to Florida, its an awesome day out. Really interesting tour. It was a 90min drive from the disney area though.
#17
Best bit (for me anyway) was the Saturn V experience. Having the show before hand and then walking out underneath those engines had me crying. I found the whole thin to be quite emotional ... Honestly!

As for the tours, I'd recommend upgrading to the Up Close tour as you get to see a lot more and the guides are packed with knowledge.

The strange thing for me is that even though my home city is Leicester, I've not visited the National Space Centre yet I have been to KSC in Florida 14 times!

Nice one. Must remember to book this weekend for out trip in April.

I suspect that the tax dollars go in some very very small way towards Nasa's operating budget and not for providing edutainment.

Anyone who thinks they are paying for a museum is, well, wrong and hasn't even bothered to look at what it is.

This is buying entrance to the Nasa Museum, and the KSC visitor complex along with the imax theatre and other onsite attractions like simulated launch etc

If you want a space theme park then don't bother, if you want something interesting rather than the UK's own pitiful and embarassing NSC then go have a look.

Only thing I would recommend though is to, instead of buying tickets, book a tour with an operator. You get driven closer to the visitor center than you do with a car, and it makes the day easier. We paid about £35 per person for a tour last year and when you consider KSC is an hours drive from Orlando center then its cheaper than a taxi.

@Enchante ... Just a guess but are your visits to Florida onsite stays in WDW hotels?

If I had the opportunity to spend 1 day at KSC or 2 weeks in WDW I'd choose the rockets!
#21
If you do go don't waste your time doing the Star Trek "Experience" if you're over 8 or not incredibly easily impressed. The rest of the stuff is well worth the trip so avoid if at all possible.
#22
I was there less then a week ago!!!

Loved it, so much cool stuff in the shops.

I know it's sunny and warm, but you should definitely try to watch both the IMAX movies, they're HD3D and they rock!!

Then go to Sonnys for all you can eat ribs :-)
#23
mmmmmmmmmmm ribs ....

Bought this a month ago and we visited today. Fantastic deal and KSC is brill. Gate price is $41adult and $31/child so 2adults,2children for £50 is a bargain. We got there late so didn't get to see everything but the tickets allow a return visit within the next 7 days for free. 3D imax show of the hubble telescope was good. Added bonus was seeing STS-133 on the launchpad ready for lift-off on Thursday. Thanks so much OP for posting this. We had a fantastic day and saved a packet.
