Cape Canaveral is home to NASA's launch headquarters and provides several entry points to the space race. Embark on your own Shuttle Launch Experience at Kennedy Space Center and ditch gravity at the United States Astronaut Hall of Fame.
Think of this place as the base camp around which the other Space Coast sites orbit. The Visitor Complex is command central for families looking to engage with the universe, which feels awfully close here.
At the complex's U.S Astronaut Hall of Fame, commissioned by the Mercury 7, you'll find Gus Grissom's smaller-than-you'd-expect space suit (the original flight capsules were only 6 feet by 10 inches high). The Sigma 7 Mercury craft is also on display, as well as Deke Slayton's on-board knife, in place, if necessary, to pry open the capsule door. You'll see Mercury 7 equipment and hardware, Gordo Cooper's cue cards from the first TV broadcast from space, transmission recordings, space rocks and dirt.
KSC has added new ways to experience space other than just buying astronaut ice cream in the gift shop; you can now go through flight training, ride on a Space Shuttle launch, smell the moon and have lunch with a (real) astronaut.
