It was surprising to see how enormous everything was. I felt the tour did not give enough photo opportunities off the bus.

Reviewed by: Kieran M, August 2014

We booked online in NZ and when we arrived at the Space Center, customer services were prompt and efficent. I cannot recommend doing the Center highly enough, it exceeded all of which I had hoped for, from taking you back to the 60's and the Apollo program to the Space Shuttle Atlantis. We missed the anniversary of Apollo 11 by 1 day and the launch of the new Delta rocket by 2 days, so check what's planned before you book.This is well worth experiencing, unfortunately we only had 1 day to do Kennedy and we missed out on going to the Astronaunts Hall of Fame which was further back along the road. Next time....
