Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Around an hour’s drive from downtown Orlando, The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers guests the chance to vicariously live the star-spangled life of an astronaut. Through high-tech interactive exhibits and special effects—including augmented reality and Star Wars-style holograms—you’ll get a very real sense of what life in space is like. Highlights include the Space Shuttle Atlantis Exhibit (the famous craft itself hangs from the ceiling in all its mid-flight glory), the United States Astronaut Hall of Fame(fascinating and humbling in equal measures) and the Shuttle Launch Experience,which does pretty much everything you’d expect, save leaving the Earth.
