Went here last summer. Awesome place! Didn't realize how much was accomplished at the Air Force Station prior to the Cape coming into play. And free admission! The host was incredibly friendly and helpful and had stories to tell!

A good place to visit if you can spend about one day. Get a glimpse of what space exploration was & what will be its future.

If you can make a choice between the many attractions in Florida/Orlando, this is a must do. Well documented, good explanations, impressive history presented extraordinarly well.

It's only a small museum, but totally worth a visit. Some very rare and interesting artefacts, giving a history of the early space program. Perfectly complements a visit to Kennedy Space Centre.

Yes. It was free but they do ask for a donation. It is separate from the space center which is not open for the general public. Have to drive north to the NASA visitors center for public tours.
