Your visit to the NASA Kennedy Space Center begins with a bang. Depart from Orlando and be welcomed by an astronaut upon arrival at the KSC to get things started. Take some time to visit the world’s most comprehensive attraction devoted to a NASA icon—the Space Shuttle Atlantis. With more than 60 interactive, touch-screen experiences and high-tech simulators, guests are sure to have an out-of-this-world experience!
After Space Shuttle Atlantis, you can explore the Heroes and Legends exhibit, or relax in the IMAX theatre to catch one of the two films showing. You'll then begin a two-hour Explore bus tour, which takes you way beyond the regular bus tour through the NASA grounds. Take a closer look at restricted areas such as launch pads and the Vehicle Assembly Building, the perfect opportunities to snap some photos.
