BREVARD COUNTY • KENNEDY SPACE CENTER – Experience the space program’s past and future on the KSC Up-Close Explore Tour, where visitors get an insider’s view of Kennedy Space Center’s role in space exploration.
Led by a trained space expert, the KSC Up-Close Explore Tour includes views of launch pads, the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) and the Shuttle Landing Facility.
The tour stops in between the Kennedy Space Center launch pads for a close-up photo opportunity, in front of the VAB, and on the NASA Causeway where guests are awarded a panoramic view of rocket launch sites at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
Along the way, visitors see other space program icons including the countdown clock at NASA’s Press Site, a mobile launcher used to move Apollo moon rockets and space shuttles to the launch pad, and the Operations and Checkout building, the departure point for astronauts traveling to the launch pad on the day of their mission.
