Plan Your Visit to the Apollo/Saturn V Center (ARCHIVAL)

As of February 7, 2022, reservations are no longer required to take the bus tour and visit the Apollo/Saturn V Center. Please proceed to bus boarding when you are ready to disembark.



The Apollo/Saturn V Center is open! But in order to help manage capacity, we are now requiring guests to reserve their bus boarding times when you begin your day at the visitor complex. Complimentary transportation reservations can be made here on the day of your visit on a first come, first served basis, as reservations are limited.

Below, view the steps you need to know to reserve transportation to this must-see exhibit.
