Its worth the drive to see though as it was one of the best things we did. The only thing that topped this place was the... More

For space flight enthusiasts, this is an interesting stop on your tour of the area. As a late-boomer, I grew up with the U.S. space program prominently in my thoughts and daily life. It was good to be able to read the breakdown of what launched from where and when it happened. Short film loops enhance the experience at several... More

This attraction is a wonderful step back in time to the early days of USAF and NASA space days. Exhibits include many of the early rockets, as well as the launch pads from which the early Mercury Program flights took flight! A hidden gem to be sure.

We went to Launch Complex 26 (Air Force Space & Missile Museum) as a part of the exciting KSC Cape Canaveral Early Space Tour. At the Launch Complex we were guided by Robert P. Graveline, who himself had been part of various military and civilian space programs - all the way back to the early 1950s! To have such a... More

I took advantage of going to the museum after being at Cape Canaveral for a launch. Seeing the different exhibits in the museum that track the history of the space adventures was quite enjoyable. It is a great adventure for a family with school age children. My 4 year old grandson was excited over the coloring book, I brought him... More

Aviation exhibits are way, way cool... my DH is actually a Rocket Scientist, who went to school near the Cape - Melbourne @ Florida Institute of Technology, so he witnessed many space launches, up close. He also was in the AF for 20 years, so this was extra meaningful to share with him!
