Attraction and Tours

Space Shuttle Atlantis

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex's Space Shuttle Atlantis brings you up close and personal with Atlantis as only astronauts have seen her before. Enjoy views from payload bay doors open as if you're actually floating in space.

With more than 60 interactive, touch-screen experiences and high-tech simulators, have a grand experience of being the astronaut. Take a virtual space walk; practice docking to the ISS; create sonic booms and glide down the Re-entry Slide; take the helm at the shuttle cockpit, and much more. Finally, celebrate the lives of the fallen heroes of STS-51L/Challenger and STS-107/Columbia at a stirring new memorial exhibit, Forever Remembered.

Shuttle Launch Experience®

Have the Shuttle Launch Experience, the ride veteran NASA astronauts call the next best thing to an actual space shuttle launch. Feel the G-forces push you back into your seat as you travel at simulated speeds up to 17,500 miles per hour and experience a brief sensation of weightlessness before the payload bay doors open, revealing a stunning view of Earth.

Kennedy Space Center Bus Tour featuring the Apollo/Saturn V Center

Explore the past, present and future of manned space flight on your Kennedy Space Center Bus Tour. See NASA's historical and working spaceflight areas including the iconic Vehicle Assembly Building and Launch Pad 39B then disembark to experience the excitement of the Apollo/Saturn V Center. Touch a real moon rock and explore a wealth of Apollo artifacts at the Apollo Treasures Gallery, including Alan Shepard's Kitty Hawk capsule and his spacesuit from Apollo 14, still bathed in moon dust.

Witness a presentation inside the Lunar Theater, where a blend of 3D theatrical elements, real NASA video and audio and multimedia imagery come together to recreate the dramatic events leading up to America's first moon landing. While you're there, grab lunch or a snack at the Moon Rock Cafe.

Live Shows and Programs

Journey To Mars: Explorers Wanted

Visit Journey To Mars: Explorers Wanted, the nation's most comprehensive permanent Mars attraction, featuring the Explorers Wanted live show with real-time updates on NASA's Mars-bound vehicle, the Space Launch System and the Orion capsule. Explore exciting simulators and displays, including a full-size Orion heat shield and a host of Mars rovers.

Astronaut Encounter

Meet a veteran NASA astronaut at our live Astronaut Encounter show 365 days a year. Offered multiple times daily, this exciting presentation features commanders, pilots, mission specialists, payload specialists and others who have launched, landed, lived and worked aboard the space shuttle and/or International Space Station. The featured astronaut will first share with you a brief multimedia presentation about his or her experience, then you'll have an opportunity to ask questions. Following the presentation, the astronaut will have time for a quick photo with each guest, so get your camera or Smartphone ready!

Mission Status Briefing at Astronaut Encounter Theater

What is our future in space? Where are we headed next? What are unmanned planetary probes learning about our universe right now? Discover the answers to these questions and more at the Mission Status Briefing held multiple times daily in the Astronaut Encounter Theater.

3D Space Films

"IMAX® A Beautiful Planet"

A Beautiful Planet, made in cooperation with NASA, features stunning footage of our magnificent blue planet and the effects humanity has had on it over time. This breathtaking portrait of Earth from space provides a unique perspective and increased understanding of our planet and galaxy as never seen before. Narrated by Academy Award®-winner Jennifer Lawrence, this 3D film features footage captured by astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

"Journey To Space 3D"

NASA's bold plans for the future, including landing astronauts on Mars and capturing asteroids, come to life through visually stunning imagery and extensive interviews with astronauts Chris Ferguson, commander of the final shuttle mission, and Serena Aunon, a new astronaut chosen for future flights. Narrated by film and television legend Sir Patrick Stewart, "Journey To Space" gives a sweeping overview of NASA's past space accomplishments, current activities and future plans.
