BREVARD COUNTY • KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA – Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will increase the cost of daily admission to $57 per person for adults and $47 for children. Military and senior daily admission will be $50, increasing by only $4.
New annual pass costs range from $82-$146. This is the first price increase at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in six years.
“Over the last six years, we have completed over 300 projects to enhance the NASA story at the visitor complex, including Space Shuttle Atlantis, Heroes and Legends featuring the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame and the new Astronaut Training Experience,” said Therrin Protze, chief operating officer, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
“We take great pride in the breadth of what we offer. We are the only place in this country where visitors can fully engage with the past, present and future of space exploration and interplanetary travel, as well as have the opportunity to interact with the heroic astronauts who have paved the way for our future endeavors.”
The visitor complex plays a key role in translating that interest into meaningful experiences that both educate and engage visitors. The excitement continues this year with an increase in launches led by NASA and the private companies that have invested in the new world of space travel.
Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will also be introducing a series of improvements and enhancements to already robust offerings including a renovated space for Lunch With An Astronaut, a new park entrance, updated facades for an overall new look and an out-of-this-world announcement, coming very soon.
Another positive change will be the ability to host more Title I school groups, at no cost, at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Additional personnel also will be hired to support expanded guest experiences and continue excellent customer service.
Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex remains committed to a high-quality and transformational experience for guests.
“We continue to evolve and change Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, the largest space complex, to meet the needs of our guests,” said Protze.
