Access to the Restricted Areas of America's Spaceport Wouldn’t it be fascinating to see behind Kennedy Space Center's gates? When it comes to NASA’s spaceflight operations, it's no surprise that rocket science is off-limits to the general public. However, get exclusive access to historic launch sites and working spaceflight facilities on the Kennedy Space Center Bus Tour, included with daily admission. Take an even closer look with an added Special Interest Tour that extends the bus tour and offers exclusive stops within America’s Spaceport.
Though each bus tour offers a different specialized view of Kennedy Space Center’s spaceflight operations, it isn’t recommended to take more than one tour per day. Choose the bus tour that most closely aligns with your interests. Keep in mind that the Kennedy Space Center Bus Tour is included with daily admission, but the Special Interest Tours require an additional ticket.
During the government shutdown, only buses driving directly to the Apollo / Saturn V Center will operate. The Explore Tour and Cape Canaveral Early Space Tour will be suspended. All Special Interest Tour ticket holders can call the Reservations Department at 1.855.433.4210 for a refund or to inquire about future tour dates after the shutdown.
