Touring Kennedy Space Center Facilities
Are there places to eat while touring Kennedy Space Center?
Early NASA astronauts squeezed food from toothpaste-like tubes, but at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex guests will fare much better. Orbit Café, G-Force Grill and Milky Way are just a few of the Visitor Complex's space-themed eateries featuring tasty dishes ranging from burgers and fries to salads. You can even have Lunch With an Astronaut. While enjoying a gourmet meal, guests will listen to a briefing from one of the few who has flown in space. Limited seating allows time for individual photos and/or the opportunity to take questions from participants.
How much does it cost to see everything?
Admission is $50 plus tax for adults, $40 plus tax for kids (ages 3-11). Admission includes the KSC tour and all Visitor Complex exhibits, shows and movies, plus the Shuttle Launch Experience® and admission to the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame®.
