Travel east of Orlando and you’ll soon arrive at Florida's Space Coast, NASA's main hub, but also a region of sandy beaches, quiet rivers, lakes and small towns.
The Kennedy Space Centre and Cape Canaveral Airforce Base have been America’s gateway to space exploration since the 1960s and provide the opportunity to learn more about the past, present and future of space travel and bring this fascinating subject to life.
Even if there isn't a live launch scheduled during your visit, you can still experience the drama of space flight with a simulator or watch a film inside the immense IMAX theatre. There is also a wide selection of rockets and space-craft to explore and astronauts to meet and talk to.
